XML has become the de facto standard for data exchange in the Internet. It allows different parties to exchange data by providing common understanding of the basic concepts in a domain. XML covers the syntactic level, but lacks support for expressing semantics. Ontologies provide a promising technology for domain knowledge representation and sharing using classes, properties and instances; they support efficient reasoning and convey domain semantics by their expressive power. In this paper we survey the most relevant strategies for ontology generation from XML documents.
