Utilizing a Policy Ontology to Facilitate Spectrum Changes in Cognitive Radio: CEN6930 Project Paper

Using Greasemonkey for converting wikipedia to

Download greasemonkey from here once installed you will need to use the link below to install the dbpedia user script that will convert wikipedia pages into dbpedia urls.

DBpedia UserScript – enhances Wikipedia pages with links to their corresponding DBpedia page

The DBpedia User Script is a Greasemonkey script that enhances Wikipedia pages with a link to their corresponding DBpedia page.

Install the DBpedia UserScript

The DBpedia User Script adds a tiny DBpedia image () which is linked to DBpedia next to the page title of any Wikipedia page.

2. Installation

2.1. Firefox

If you like to install the DBpedia User Script for Firefox, you need to install Greasemonkey. Greasemonkey is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, an open source Web Browser.
After installation (which requires restarting your browser), you are now ready to install the DBpedia User Script.

Now clicking on the Install link above triggers Greasemonkey to pop up the script installation panel. Greasemonkey shows you a list of what sites the script will run on and ask if you want to install the script.

Now loading Wikipedia pages results in the DBpedia User Script being run.

2.2. Safari

If you like to install the DBpedia User Script for Safari, you need to install GreaseKit. Grease Kit is a SIMBL plugin for Mac OS.

2.3. Opera

If you like to install the DBpedia User Script for Opera, read Opera’s scripting guide.

SPARQL Reference

SPARQL  is the language used to query RDF graphs. Through Jena’s ARQ API, you can create SPARQL queries in order to answer questions about your model. Here is a useful and concise reference guide:

In addition, here is a link to a simple tutorial:

JADE Behaviors

JADE provides a concept called a Behavior. A Behavior is a means by which agents can execute actions, such as sending messages. Two very common types of behaviors are the Ticker Behavior ( and the CyclicBehavior (


This abstract class implements a behavior that periodically executes a user-defined piece of code. The user is expected to extend this class re-defining the method onTick() and including the piece of code that must be periodically executed into it. In essence, this is very similar to a scheduled task or a Unit cron task. This behavior is very useful for monitoring states periodically.


This class implements an atomic behaviour that must be executed forever. This abstract class can be extended by application programmers to create behaviours that keep executing continuously (e.g. simple reactive behaviours).

In both cases, the expectation is that the application programmer overrides the action() method in order to provide application specific implementation. Agents can have any number of behaviors and sub-behaviors executing at different internals. The only thing to remember is that behaviors, once executed, will execute until completion. This makes the model very simple and makes sharing of state very straightforward.
