An ontology is the formal specification of concepts and their attributes in a particular domain of interest. Frames provide an intuitive representation structure for ontologies and knowledge bases (KB) (ontologies with specific instances of concepts and attributes). Protégé is a frame-based Knowledge Base Management System (KBMS) that provides users with tools for knowledge modeling, knowledge acquisition, consistency checking, and concurrency control. In addition, Protégé provides tools for analysis of knowledge bases and a Java API that allows users to develop and share their own tools.
