Hi All,

I have a couple of questions re combining Linked Data HTTP URIs and HTML5
WebSocket URIs.

There are a couple of applications that I would like to build which have a
mix of static and dynamic data. For the dynamic data I am planning to use
HTML5 WebSockets [1][2] which uses the ws:// and wss:// prefixes.

As an example I want to report the runtime status of the servers in a
Weblogic cluster.  Using JMX monitoring to get the actual status I could


to display the current status of each server in my monitoring app.

I am also planning to display LinkedData[3] about each server using the URIs

<http://www.3kbo.com:8080/servers/1> and

It would seem logical to use owl:sameAs to combine the HTTP URIs and the
Websocket URIs to assert that they are referring to the same individuals,
but is that valid?

I.e. can the following two statements be made in OWL?

<http://www.3kbo.com:8080/servers/1> owl:sameAs
<ws://www.3kbo.com:9090/servers/1> .

<http://www.3kbo.com:8080/servers/2> owl:sameAs
<ws://www.3kbo.com:9090/servers/2> .

Does the forth LinkedData[3] principal

"4. Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things."

implicitly include links to Websocket URIs ?
