The spread of the Internet has introduced many online government forms and electronic commerce applications using standard forms defined in the XML format. In case of fields that require specialized knowledge of a certain field, it is important not only to verify XML format but also to verify the validity of the form or transaction data before transmission. In this paper, we propose a validation system to perform verification on the basis of the XML document content. The feature of the proposed system is to construct ontologies using OWL, SWRL and extended rules. And it is to execute reasoning using these ontologies to judge the validity of the document content. To demonstrate usefulness in a use case of the proposed method, we present a validation system for a Japanese real property registration application.
