Overview: The Web Ontology Language (OWL) defines three classes of documents: Lite, DL and Full. All RDF/XML documents are OWL Full documents. This paper discusses parsing and species recognition that is the process of determining whether a given document falls into the OWL Lite, DL or Full class. This paper describes two alternative approaches to this task; one based on abstract syntax trees, the other on RDF triples, and compares their key characteristics.
