Semantic Web Client Library

Recently I found the problem of embedding “dynamic” data from the semantic web to the semantic desktop, namely data that cannot be crawled efficiently.

Also, to annotate web resources in gnowsis, it is good to know as much about them as possible. A key to this vision is to respect the current best practices of publishing RDF data. Luckily Tim Berners-Lee has concentrated them alltogether in Tabulator.

And for us, we can use this by building on a library that the witty Chris Bizer, Tobias Gauß, and Richard Cyganiak did:

The Semantic Web Client Library

The Sematic Web Client Library represents the complete Semantic Web as a single RDF graph. The library enables applications to query this global graph using SPARQL- and find(SPO) queries. To answer queries, the library dynamically retrieves information from the Semantic Web by dereferencing HTTP URIs and by following rdfs:seeAlso links. The library is written in Java and is based on the Jena framework.
