Considering the evolution of the semantic wiki engine on-based platforms, two main approaches could be distinguished: Ontologies for Wikis (OfW) and Wikis for Ontologies (WfO). OfW vision requires the existing ontologies to be imported. Most of them use the Resource Description Framework (RDF-based) systems in conjunction with the standard Structured Query Language (SQL) database to manage and query semantic data. But, relational database is not an ideal type of storage for semantic data. A more natural data model for Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is RDF, a data format that organizes information in graphs rather than in fixed database tables. This paper presents an ontology on-based architecture, which aims to implement this idea. The Architecture mainly includes three-layered functional architecture: Web User Interface Layer, Semantic Layer, and Persistence Layer.
