BOWiki architecture. (a) The BOWiki extension to the MediaWiki software processes the semantic data added to wiki pages. The semantic data is subsequently transferred to the BOWikiServer using a TCP/IP connection. (b) To evaluate newly entered data or semantic queries, the BOWikiServer requires an ontology in OWL-DL format (provided during installation of the BOWiki). Consistent semantic data will be stored. If an inconsistency is detected, the edited page is rejected with an explanation of the inconsistency. The BOWikiServer currently uses the Jena 2 Semantic Web Framework together with the Pellet reasoner. (c) After successful verification the semantic data is stored in a separate part of the SQL database.
