Subject: Ontolingua to SQL

I am currently working on a project that investigates the mapping
of Ontolingua into SQL.
We are identifying a suitable representation ontology (Probably a subset
of the Frame Ontology) which allow us to establish the basis for our

We aim at coming up with a set of guidelines to turn ontologies expressed
in Ontolingua into the conceptual schema of a relational database. Likewise,
we also aim at mapping KIF into SQL (Query language). This allows us to have
a generic KIF interface for assertion and query to the database.

I would not be surprised if somebody has already done some work on this
area. If this is the case, I would be very grateful if anyone could point
me towards some relevant bibliography or some existing results.

Thanks a lot,
