Abstract: To put in practice knowledge-based software engineering practice we need frameworks that enable the programmer to integrate semantic-rich approaches in conventional software development process. In this work, we present how a knowledge base can be smoothly integrated with conventional domain-centric data models, as Enterprise Java Beans and object-relational mapping toolkits, as hibernate. We present a clear pathway for the software developer, starting from a domain ontology, how to generate both enterprise Java beans source code and hibernate object-relational mappings. In this way, a semantic-rich enterprise development environment is specified, that combines both the benefits of using ontologies and software development standards.
