*Hi Rupert, the web site is up. Please use * *for
accessing the admin interface of SKOSware (our fault, we should redirect
the user to the admin interface and not simply show the Apache default page
;-). Use the credentials **guest/guest **to login. The service is in beta
test, so please forgive us for any problems found on some specific concepts
or thesaurus.*
*Under the scenes, the PHP frontend access the REST interface (try for
example *
 *or * *for some
significative examples).*
*Some technical details, if you're interested: REST interface is
implemented with RestEasy platform (*, *it's
an interesting alternative to Jersey in my opinion) on JBoss 6. RDF
repository used for storing triples is Allegrograph (*, *free edition flavour).*

*Yes, exactly. We are thinking to use "Rules" in background for thesaurus
enrichment, but we are open for suggestions.*

*We have already imported the Garante SKOS thesaurus with the Generic RDF
indexer and the concepts are shown nicely from the enhancement engines,
too. Are we doing something wrong?*

*We have tried LDPath and it seems already very powerful  for our simple
needs. We plan to continue to rebuild the SVN trunk periodically to insert
the new updates. Thks.*

*Thanks again for all your useful suggestions. We will give a try to
annotate.js soon. It seems very cool!*
*Do you think that we can use it also in page presentation or is it
specific for rich html editors?*

*We hope that Alessandro Adamou and David Riccitelli can give us a helpful
hand on this hard task ;-)*
*Anyway probably LDPath is enough for starting.*
