changelog

AceWiki is a semantic wiki that is easy to use and powerful at the same time. Making use of the controlled natural language ACE, the formal statements of the wiki are shown in a way that looks like natural English. In order to help the users to write correct ACE sentences, AceWiki provides a predictive editor.

AceWiki has been developed by the Attempto group at the Department of Informatics of the University of Zurich. The first version of AceWiki was a cooperation with the Bioinformatics group of the TU Dresden.

The AceWiki interface makes use of modern AJAX technologies. It is implemented in Java using the Echo Web Framework.

The OWL reasoner Pellet is integrated into AceWiki. It ensures that the content of the wiki is always consistent. The reasoner is also used to infer the class-hierarchies and class-memberships, and the results are displayed in ACE again. Furthermore, questions can be added to the wiki articles. Those questions are evaluated by the reasoner and the answers are displayed directly in the article.
