Where are you having problems? Is the ontology on the web or locally? Have you been able to read the ontology with the API? What code isn't working for you (and how is it failing). I presume that you've been referencing the documentation (http://owlapi.sourceforge.net/documentation.html)

Actually the ontology is local i'm able to fetch create individuals, i just need a hint to do the editing, i'm referencing to the owl api documentation and couldn't find anything about editing the individuals

To edit an axiom: load the ontology, remove the old axiom and add the edited axiom (.addAxiom and .removeAxiom)

thanks a lot, can you guide me to a tutorial on how to delete an axiom, the documentation of the OWL API mentions how to delete all the individuals not a specific one, I'm also having troubles with this issue . thanks a lot

There are a few examples in the OWL API homepage, one explains how to add axioms. For removal it is the almost the same, you only have to use the class RemoveAxiom.
