The easiest way to plug your DB into Semantic Web is to use a tool like 
D2R [1].
I cite from the website:
"D2R Server is a tool for publishing relational databases on the 
Semantic Web.
It enables RDF and HTML browsers to navigate the content of the 
database, and allows applications to query the database using the SPARQL 
query language."

You do not need anything else. Actually if you want to put your dataset 
into the Linked Data [2] you need to connect it with other existing 
dataset in the cloud, e.g., DBpedia [3] or MusicBrainz [4]. This is the 
most difficult aspect.
