Methodology of decreasing software complexity using ontology

In this paper a model of web application‘s source code, based on the OSD ontology (Ontology for Software Development), is proposed. This model is applied to implementation and maintenance phase of software development process through the DevOntoCreator tool. The aim of this solution is decreasing software complexity of that source code, using many different maintenance techniques, like creation of documentation, elimination dead code, cloned code or bugs, which were known before. Due to this approach saving on software maintenance costs of web applications will be possible.
