Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLEREZZA-317) add support for XSPARQL
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 17:03:05 GMT


Henry Story commented on CLEREZZA-317:

XSPARQL has been released open source

We are happy to announce the open source release of our Java implementation of the XSPARQL
language [1]. XSPARQL allows to write queries to transform data between XML and RDF in an
intuitive manner, combining SPARQL and XQuery in a common language.

The new open source version provides a cleaner, more stable reimplementation of the XSPARQL
language than our first version, now fully implemented in Java. The new implementation can
be downloaded from the Sourceforge project page [2], install instructions can be found on
the XSPARQL homepage [3].

The new technical report [4] gives more extensive description together with a formal semantics
and empirical results.

We appreciate your feedback/comments/questions to be sent to our  mailing list [5].

> XSPARQL [1] is the RDF equivalent of XQuery, and is in fact built on top of XQuery usually.

> It can be used to create XML from rdf stores using SPARQL like queries (called lowering)
and transform XML into RDF (called lifting).
> This could be used for two purposes in Clerezza:
> 1. Lowering: for generating XHTML or other XML formats
>     this would be in addition to Scala Server Pages.  Some things that could be done
more easily than in SSP is get information from different graphs. 
> 2. Lifting: for transforming XML into RDF
>    This is where XSPARQL is really without equivalent. This can help write transforms
for any XML format into RDF for the store, making it much
> easier to build integrating layers with existing web services
> The DERI Team in Galway has just published the java code [2].
