SWAD-EUROPE Report Summary

Project ID: IST-2001-34732
Funded under: FP5-IST
Country: United Kingdom

Semantic web tools support

This area of the SWAD-Europe project encompasses several different strands, including software development, surveys of existing work, and input into standards track work in the RDF Core and Data Access Working Groups at W3C.

The aim was to build on existing work and experience in the Semantic Web community and within the project to help get various data access methods for RDF (APIs and query languages) to the stage where they could be standardized. To do this, the project undertook surveys of existing APIs and query languages, implementations of RDF query languages, including testcases; and demonstrators showing scalability of the technologies. The focus was on near-term practical goals and grounding in running code. This work has contributed directly to the work of the W3C's Data Access working group.
