Towards a Commons RDF Java library

  1. 1. Towards a Commons RDF Java library Sergio Fernández, Andy Seaborne and Peter Ansell
  2. 2. Sergio Fernández @wikier Who Am I Senior Researcher at Salzburg Research Partner Technology Manager at Redlink GmbH Committer at the Apache Software Foundation
  3. 3. Commons RDF, why? ● Historical incompatibility in Java ● Not providing yet-another-wrapper ● But providing commons interfaces ● It arrives in the right time: ○ Apache Jena 3.0 ○ OpenRDF Sesame 4.0 ● But it will live or die on its own merits!
  4. 4. Features ● A type-safe, non-general API that covers RDF 1.1. ● Initial focused on a subset of the core RDF 1.1 concepts ○ IRI, Blank Node, Literal, Triple, and Graph ● In a future other aspects may be also included ○ datasets, query, etc. Which other interfaces are desired by developers?
  5. 5. Design using Git workflows
  6. 6. Next steps and discussion ● Bootstrap the implementations on each toolkit ● Evolve the current design ● Get feedback from the commuity ● Currently working at Github, although at some point we could move to Apache Commons or any suitable organization
