Give REST and SPARQL to Semantic Web future of service oriented architectures

Rohit Bhardwaj, Kronos Labs

RohitBhardwaj The LinkingOpenData Community Project has accomplished a global RESTful SOA scenario giving access to over two billion interlinked statements (RDF triples) from some 50 distributed providers such as DBpedia, Geonames, MusicBrainz, WordNet, the DBLP bibliography, or the 2000 U.S. Census. All this data is published in the Resource Description Framework (RDF) format. Each data set is structured as a named graph which can be accessed by a "Cool URI", using a simple HTTP GET. If the provider also implements a SPARQL endpoint, may be using RDBMS-based tools such as D2R Server, clients may use the powerful SPARQL Query Language for RDF against the data. In this presentation we will look at few live examples and demos for RESTful web services and SPARQL. Attendees will be able to use powerful RESTful SOA in their businesses.
