Abstract

Experienceware is a paradigm which emerged in the late eighties and evolved during the nineties, resulting in technologies such as experience factories and their constituent experience bases. These are designed to manage experiences collected throughout the life-cycle of a software project. Ontologies emerged round about the same time as a way to represent consensual knowledge about a domain of interest in reusable and sharable formats. Despite their diverse origins and ways of development, there is an overlap of scope regarding one of their goals: to support reuse. In this paper we make use of this overlap by applying the experience factories paradigm to ontology deployment and in particular, to support ontology verification.
