Hi Barry,

your project - of course I agree :-)

However, I don't really see what e.g. GATE would have to do with "providing linked data" in any different way than Stanbol. Like Stanbol, it is also a framework and API, so I'd move this to Chapter 5 as well. 

Now reading the abstract on your webpage, I see you are actually referring to GATECloud, so this might be a slightly different case - our company RedLink (www.redlink.at, currently in the process of incorporation) will provide Stanbol-as-a-Service in a similar fashion in the coming weeks (including a for-free service). :)

Greetings,

Sebastian

It aims to be a reference implementation for the Linked Data Platform once the recommendation stabilizes. The Linked Media Framework builds on top of Marmotta and provides integration with SKOSjs (thesaurus management), OpenRefine (for RDF-izing legacy data), Apache SOLR (for Semantic Search) and Apache Stanbol (content ananlysis and interlinking).

Apache Marmotta is currently undergoing its first Apache release (some minor license details still to be settled). We expect it to be available after the Easter holidays. The Linked Media Framework will follow with its next release probably end of April, building on the most recent versions of Marmotta, Stanbol and SOLR.
