dajobe: from the SF description a development environment for developing semantic metadata archives. SCAM has been developed to manage learning resources. SCAM is built upon international technology standards and metadata standards. Such as RDF, Dublin Core, IEEE/LOM and IMS
dajobe: I think it uses J2EE and jena underneath
dajobe: also, KTH here are the people working on the RDF IEEE LOM
dajobe: (older?) KTH scam site
dajobe: Rio has been updated to deal with several issues that have come up during testing against the post-last call test cases of the RDF specifications. Release 0.97 of Rio passes all approved parser tests, with the exception of two tests that deal with XML Literal namespace issues.
jeen: See Sesame release notes
jeen: See Rio release notes
jeen: Sesame 0.97 includes a new API for transparent access to Sesame repositories. The documentation for this API can be found at
monkeyiq: Version 1.1.12 released today can mount RDF/XML and RDF/bdb files as a filesystem
monkeyiq: RDF literals are exposed as filesystem like Extended Attributes (EA) and s,p,o are exposed as a filesystem directory structure
monkeyiq: 1.1.2 also adds support for setting XML like namespace prefixes so that URIs used in RDF can be trimmed down like in RDF/XML
monkeyiq: Roundtrip is supported via reading as-rdf EA to get all the EA and their values as an RDF/XML file
monkeyiq: The ability to store EA in a personal RDF/bdb store "myrdf://" is now also supported. Think of such things as adding emblem tags to websites etc
monkeyiq: RDF cycles are resolved via the use of virtual softlinks.
monkeyiq: Still some changes needed to bring it up to full spec as described in the WWW04/semweb paper submission.
monkeyiq: Full support for operations such as list, rename, remove, and create are in 1.1.12
monkeyiq: RDF/XML and RDF/bdb files can also be generated using the fcreate or gfcreate command line tools
monkeyiq: RDF handling goodness is done using the redland RDF package. There exists an internal C++ wrapper for redland in libferris which may be split out at a later date.
monkeyiq: but do beware the build dependancies of ferris
dajobe: was submitted Monday 17 Nov
dajobe: so hint hint you still have time to start, update and/or finish implementation reports (odd, the jena ones don't seem to be here)
dajobe: for sandro - jena rdf results
dajobe: sesame impl report 2003-08-07
dajobe: 3store impl report 2003-08-14
dajobe: continuing from yesterday's notes
dajobe: added a description of the section on Store choices: relational/non-relational, schemas and systems on day1
dajobe: now with scaling and aggregation, and that's all for today
danbri: I was just chatting to Stephen Pemberton. It appears you can pretty much build a spreadsheet system in pure XForms, using XPath-expressions bound to XML data elements.
danbri: Closer to RDF rules work than I expected. Worth thinking about.
danbri: "XForms is the new markup language for forms on the Web. This document is a quick introduction to XForms for HTML Forms authors. It shows you how to convert existing forms to their XForms equivalent."
chaalsNRT: If someone had collected the 25 beer prize it would be easier to find the discussion of and - using Xforms to deal with RDF
danbri: Have you looked at the spreadsheety functionality?
