Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "LindaProposal" by SergioFernandez
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 07:42:27 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "LindaProposal" page has been changed by SergioFernandez:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/LindaProposal?action=diff&rev1=13&rev2=14

  
  == Proposal ==
  
- The goal of Apache Linda is to provide an open implementation of a Linked Data Platform
that can be used, extended, and deployed easily by organizations who want to publish Linked
Data or build custom applications on Linked Data. The phrase "Linked Data" is used here idiosyncratically
to refer to a data integration paradigm across the Web.

+ The phrase "Linked Data" is used here idiosyncratically to refer to a data integration paradigm
across the Web. The term was coined by Tim Berners-Lee, and it is based on [[http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html|four
very simple principles]].
  
  Linda will follow the core recommendations of the W3C on RDF, SPARQL and Linked Data publishing,
particularly the emerging Linked Data Platform ([[http://www.w3.org/2012/ldp|LDP]]) recommendation.
It will also offer extensions for frequently needed additional functionalities like Linked
Data Querying, WebID, WebACL, Reasoning, and Versioning. Linda aims to cover both, Linked
Open Data, as well as Enterprise Linked Data scenarios, providing facilities to deal with
different data sources and requirements (small data/big data, open access/restricted access,
etc).
  
  
  == Background ==
  
- The Semantic Web isn't just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so
that a person or machine can explore the web of data based on [[http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html|four
very simple principles]]. Moreover, the Web has quickly evolved to a Read-Write paradigm,
and Linked Data technologies too. And Linda will address this challenge and offer a common
infrastructure for organizations working in this area. Linda comes as a continuation of the
work in the Linked Media Framework (aka LMF) project. LMF is an easy-to-setup server application
that bundles central Semantic Web technologies to offer some advanced services. The Linked
Media Framework consists of LMF Core which provides a Read-Write Linked Data server, plus
some modules that complement the server with other added added capabilities, such as, SPARQL
1.1, LDPath, LDCache, Reasoning, Versioning, etc. Besides, LMF also provides a Client Library,
currently available in Java, PHP, and Javascript, as a convenient API abstraction around the
LMF web services. Currently LMF integrates with other relevant tools (Apache Stanbol, Google
Refine or Drupal) to cover a wider range of use cases and needs.
