Hello Ashok,

Asio Semantic Bridge for Relational Databases(SBRD) maps/rewrites SPARQL 
queries to SQL and converts SQL result set to RDF.

The approach we have taken for semantically merging data from one or 
more RDB(s) is to keep data source ontology(or ontologies) separate from 
the domain ontology and use SWRL mapping rules for mapping data from 
RDB(s) to the domain ontology.

My colleagues @BBN have published a paper for OWLED2008DC that might be 
of interest to us. The paper is "Use of OWL and SWRL for Semantic 
Relational Database Translation" and can be downloaded from [3].
