DanC_lap: can't tell if this is serious or a joke. "When I consider that a good deal of my time is spent running applications like Disk Defragmenter, Scandisk, Norton AV, Windows Update and Ad-Aware--none of which are available for the Mac platform--it doesn't make sense for me to "switch" to a Mac at this time."
chimezie: This was developed as a first draft of how the components of a database could be modeled in RDFS/OWL
chimezie: This is a formal model of the RDF constructs used by 4Suite's repository to manage system metadata
chimezie: Such as: creation date, modification date, IMT, file size, TTL, owner, etc...
chimezie: This model was formalized quite some time afterwards, but represents a blueprint of the RDF content that 4Suite uses in order to function as a content repository
chimezie: Some documentation on the infrastructure of this XML/RDF driven repository. Also includes some interesting concepts including that of an automatic transformation from XML instances of a particular class to corresponding RDF content.
chimezie: This association between the documents and the transform (which could be expressed in XSLT or as XPath -> Triple Patterns) is modelled explicitely in the repository as a 'Document Definition' (very similar to GRDDL in principle)
chimezie: Whereas GRDDL works to extract RDF from structured microformats 'in the wild', Document Definitions work to extract RDF from structured markup in a 'closed system.'
