Subject [jira] [Commented] (ANY23-127) Parent Task for Improving Any23 Vocab Package
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2014 20:13:15 GMT


Lewis John McGibbney commented on ANY23-127:

.bq The purpose of the Semantic Web is that parsing tools like any23 should be vocabulary
Yes of course. I take your point. However if we are not namespace (or more appropriately vocabulary)
aware then do we just _expect_ to recognize some namespace declarations?

.bq by design out dated as soon as it ships, given that vocabularies tend to evolve
I need to disagree here. I would agree if you had added "given that _some_ vocabularies..."

Some vocab's do evolve you are right. You've picked probably the most dynamic of all as your
example however this ignores the point that _some_ are not as dynamic. 
For example, I added some Legal vocab's for a specific project I was working on. These may
or may not be useful to other people. I also know that the vocabularly has NOT changed, therefore
they are as useful now as they were when I wrote the implementation.
If you navigate to the BBC vocabularies you will also see that these are well established
and are not as dynamic as you may indicate.
Furthermore, by implementing other developers' vocabularies we are directly inviting those
same developers to use Any23 as a tool for extracting triples from their markup. Personally
I've reached out the DOAP and LKIF communities to state that we are now namespace aware. This
is the wider goal.
I hope this provides some justification behind my reasoning on this one.

> This issue should track the addition or amendment of o.a.a.vocab classes. The idea is
to add to these classes to ensure Any23 is a functionally expressive and useful as possible.
