The next major advance in the Web?Web 3.0?will be built on semantic Web technologies, which will allow data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. Written by a team of highly experienced Web developers, this book explains examines how this powerful new technology can unify and fully leverage the ever-growing data, information, and services that are available on the Internet. Helpful examples demonstrate how to use the semantic Web to solve practical, real-world problems while you take a look at the set of design principles, collaborative working groups, and technologies that form the semantic Web. The companion Web site features full code, as well as a reference section, a FAQ section, a discussion forum, and a semantic blog.
Go beyond the basics to build practical, real-world Semantic Web applications
The Semantic Web offers a revolutionary and powerful way to build intelligent software applications that take advantage of the information and services that exist on the Web, as well as within the enterprise. The Semantic Web delivers on the promise of "Web 3.0" — facilitating automated data integration, processing, and reasoning.
This author team of Semantic Web professionals shows how to apply Semantic Web technologies to build practical, real-world applications and to solve real-world problems. The authors provide a generous supply of working code examples showing how to put concepts into practice.
They fully cover such key technologies as Microformats, Resource Description Framework (RDF), RDF Schema (RDFS), the Web Ontology Language (OWL), Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL), SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language (SPARQL).
In addition, Semantic Web Programming covers:
- Semantic Web architectures, tools, and best practices
Ways in which knowledge representation and application integration drive a Semantic Web application
The methods that integrate, align, and output data and information in many formats and locations
A look into the future of the Semantic Web, including advanced integration and distribution, advanced reasoning, visualization, and more
A detailed look into the burgeoning OWL 2 W3C Recommendations and how they will affect and improve your software architectures
An extensive Semantic Web application that ingests data from many sources include Facebook, mySQL®, Jabber, and others, aligns and unifies the information, queries across the unified information and then exports to various formats
The companion Web site offers access to all related articles, complete code examples, an active blog and wiki, and any book or code updates.
