The World Wide Web is the biggest data manipulation center where semantic web is step towards easy content access over millions of machine. Where as, ontology is important part of semantic web and play a vital role in future web. Ontology development tool matured enough in last decades but no such on-line Web-based ontology tool has been developed under the technology of PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor). Defining things semantically by the help of ontology will be beneficial for LAMP technology. Therefore, a LAMP based tool is planned to fill in the gap in the area of ontology development. For which, Web-based Ontology Development and Editing (WODE) tool is developed which help in creating ontology on web environment.
