Projects / Rx4RDF


Rx4RDF is a set of technologies designed to make W3C's RDF less complex and easier to use. It includes RxPath, which enables one to use familar XML technologies like XPath, XSLT, and XUpdate to query, transform and update an RDF model, Raccoon, an application server that uses an RDF model for its data store and RxPath to translate arbitrary requests to RDF resources, and ZML and RxML, alternative text formats for XML and RDF that were designed to allow novices to write XML and RDF with (nearly) the same ease as a Wiki entry.

Recent releases

  •  05 Apr 2006 08:02

    Release Notes: The RxPath data engine now uses a simple but optimizing query engine and is much faster. It also now supports RDF named graphs (RDF contexts). It is now easier to use RxPath in XML contexts, such as an XSLT page. Other improvements include better support for 3rd-party RDF libraries and RDF stores. Finally, Rhizome-Wiki has many new features based on these changes.
