Abstract: In this paper, we have focused on using the bolero.net community in the semantic web and grid environment. Bolero.net represents a community with the ambitious initiatives to standardise world trade messaging and to create a community for more efficient international trade. Bolero.net uses a protocol called boleroXML that represents a set of standard electronic documents with the aim of facilitating interoperability amongst the members of the electronic international trade chain. The idea of making the boleroXML standard electronic documents in the form of an OWL ontology is shown in this paper. The main goal of using an ontology of the boleroXML documents is to moderate this kind of web-based community. The way this ontology is connected with web services, as well as web agents, is shown through the use of ebXML Registry and Repository.

Keywords: semantic web; semantic grid; Bolero.net community; ebXML; web services; web agents; ontologies; OWL; grid computing; web based communities; online communities; interoperability; international trade chain; electronic documents.
