It is common in Semantic Web development to generate an API (programming language library) for reading, manipulating, and writing Semantic Web data. This relieves programmers of the tedious task of creating redundant plumbing code for every program they write. SWeDE provides a set of API generation tools for working with project documents. It is also easy for other plug-in developers to attach their own API generation tools to SWeDE.
The following API generation tools are currently provided by SWeDE:
Generates a Java vocabulary class for use with the Jena libraries.
Generates a Java API for working with OWL instance data for the given ontologies. It is built on Jena2 and mirrors their ontology interface.
