 ontology development 101

Ontologies have become core components of many large applications. This paper addresses the issues of why one would build an ontology and presents a methodology for creating ontologies based on declarative knowledge representation systems. It leverages the authors experiences developing and maintaining ontologies in a number of ontology environments including Protégé, Ontolingua, and Chimaera. It utilizes a wines knowledge base example to present the methodology. While it is aimed at users of frame-based systems, it can be useful for building ontologies in any object-centered system.
