GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] UML Class Diagram for GoodRelations

Dear all:
Many of you asked me for a UML class diagram of the GoodRelations 
ontology - I am working on one that reflects the latest state of the 
ontology - apologies for the delay.
Attached, please find two illustrations that are neither nicely designed 
nor completely accurate, but they may already be helpful as a first 

The final diagram will also be included in the updated HTML 
documentation for the ontology.

If anybody of you knows a good tool for deriving UML class diagrams from 
OWL ontologies in a way that allows editing the final diagram, I would 
very much appreciate that. The plug-in for Protégé 4.0


creates only a .png file of unsatisfying quality and the online tool at


exports only XMI 1.0 as far as I can see.
