Summary: This paper describes some improvements of our previous work that realizes an integrated framework for extracting constraint-based multi-level association rules with an ontology support. The ontology is not the repository of the data, but it models the application domain describing the meta-data. Furthermore, it permits to focus the analysis only on a subset of data and to express multilevel constraints on them. In this context, we report some theoretical notion already introduced and a detailed description of the recent improvements: the introduction of the object properties in the framework, and the implementation of an user interface.
