Hi Freddy,
Thank you for pointing out the issue in the report. 
 
> 1) In the comparison table (Query Implementation part),...In reality, R2O only works in the second way, it always converts the SPARQL into SQL first.
The paper we reviewed [1],  described the use of SQL "...The main steps of its executions are: Query & R2O parsing, SQL generation, SGBD execution result...." and also in a previous publication [2].

We will add this new information to the survey wiki, it would be great if you could point to a reference/documentation.
 
We will remove the "both" value from the comparison table for now in the survey wiki.

The column "Number of Datasets" is with regard to top-level column "Data Integration" and describes the total number of datasets that were integrated in the given project. For example, DartGrid integrated 70 TCM datasets .
 
Cheers,
Satya

> Dear All, 


> My name is Freddy Priyatna, currently working in my master thesis integrating Distributed Query Processor(DQP) with R2O+ODEMapster (one of the tools mentioned in the Survey Report) in order to make it works with multiple databases.
> 

> I've been reviewing the survey report (this version : http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/rdb2rdf/RDB2RDF_SurveyReport_01082009.pdf) and there are some comments that I would like to make :
> 1) In the comparison table (Query Implementation part), it mentions that R2O works in "Both", which means that the SPARQL query can be executed directly to the RDF repository or converted first to SQL then executed to RDB. In reality, R2O only works in the second way, it always converts the SPARQL into SQL first.
> 2) In fact, my previous point is not true. Rather than using SPARQL, R2O(+ODEMapster) is using its own query, which is called "ODEMQL". We are in the progress to enable R2O to support SPARQL.
> 3) There's a column in the table stating "Number of databases". I can't find detail information about this column. Does "Multiple" value here mean that the tool allow mapping from multiple databases? How about the query processing? Does it support DQP as well?
