create SA-MXML file

I have an MXML file and OWL ontology , what is the way to combine them to get SA-MXML file ? Is there any way to do that in Prom by writting my own program is there any API that i can use to access the OWL ontologie

I'm newbie at this so can any one help me please.
One other thing, can i combine any OWL ontology and any MXML file to get my SA-MXML file?

Thank you.

    Dear Moufida,

    My first recommendation would be to not create an SA-MXML file but an XES file, and use the semantic extension:
    http://www.xes-standard.org/start

    Then each log/trace/event can have a special attribute, referring to an external ontology file to indicate to which concept it relates.

    Note however that very few plug-ins currently can interpret this attribute correctly.

  • when you said "each log/trace/event can have a special attribute, referring to an external ontology file to indicate to which concept it relates." so i need to have several ontology files

    Hi Moufida,

    I don't think you really need multiple files, since the each reference refers to a file and a concept in the file, although I'm not really sure about the details.
    It should work in a similar way as SA-MXML.

    Dear Moufida,

    If with MXML file you mean the cases/traces and their events then you need them to do process mining :)
