Subject Re: a question on CSV to RDF conversion
Date Sat, 31 Jan 2015 20:28:52 GMT
Hi Cevahir,

Low hanging fruit here is to run this through our online service.

If you are getting some triples back then you are good. Then you need to
ensure that you can reproduce using some code.

Did you debug this? I mean this could potentially be the fact that your
path if incorrect. Did you check you are actually reading data from a CSV

Thank you for coming to the list. CSV extraction has been pretty stable an
untouched for a while now. We are very keen to ensure that the code is
capable of CSV --> RDF conversions.

In all honestu I would advise you to NOT use the CSV extractor explicitly.
Why don;t you try using the code we provide here
The HTTPDocumentSource can be switched for a DocumentSouce and you can read
your data that way. It also means your code is more flexible and will save
you time in the future when you need to extract from XHTML for example.

No, you've passed in a String which relates to absolutely nothing. You
would need to actually name an extractor. You can check out the Javadocs
for concrete specification

> >2. Where is the error?

I don't think there is an error. I think that nothing is happening. Your
code is not doing anything. If you follow the above then it will do
something for you i promise.

Piece of cake

You don;t need to. We've already implemented this for you.

No this is your target URI from which you wish to build a triples
manifestation. You do not need to care about the individual nature of the
vocabularies you wish to recognize within source data. Any23 will do this
for you.

Well it is on the internet now. I hope that you are able to use Any23 for
your task.
