By   /  February 27, 2012  /  No Comments

The W3C recently announced, “The RDB2RDF Working Group has published two Candidate Recommendation documents that help to bring relational database information to the Semantic Web.”

The W3C recently announced, “The RDB2RDF Working Group has published two Candidate Recommendation documents that help to bring relational database information to the Semantic Web: R2RML: RDB to RDF Mapping Language and A Direct Mapping of Relational Data to RDF.”

The announcement continues, “The former describes R2RML, a language for expressing customized mappings from relational databases to RDF datasets. Such mappings provide the ability to view existing relational data in the RDF data model, expressed in a structure and target vocabulary of the mapping author’s choice. The latter document defines a direct mapping from relational data to RDF. Implementations are invited.

It adds, “Test Cases are available at:http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/test-cases/. Directions on how to submit implementation reports and test case results are at:http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/wiki/Submitting_Implementation_Reports. Comments and implementation experience reports are welcome through 30 April 2012.”
