Step one is to download Semano.
You can download Semano in zip file format (or as tar.gz) using one of the links below:
zip file (for windows): http://www.minds.may.ie/~provost/semano/downloads/Semano.zip
tar.gz file (for linux or mac): http://www.minds.may.ie/~provost/semano/downloads/Semano.tar.gz
Once you have Semano downloaded, extract the compessed file. The root directory should have the following in it:
With some versions of java, you can just double-click Semano.jar to start the program.
If not, you should open a comand prompt (or shell) and cd to the extracted Semano directory.
From there, you should run the following command: "java -jar Semano.jar"
The Quickstart example will check a blog on MySQL by Andy Page against a relational databases ontology.
First you need to add the xml feed of Andy's Blog entry
then you need to add the relational databases ontology which is an owl file
Finally, click "Start" and wait for the results to be created.
Note that the first time "Start" is clicked, the program can take a few moments to get going.
After that, it usually gets to work fairly fast.
You can open the file where your results have been stored for the above example.
Open a text editor, open the file "andy.xml.owl" which should be located in the following directory:
