  RDF/XML Parser Tests
  http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt 

    An online comparison demo of 5 parsers.

  RDF Parser Tests Schema
  http://ilrt.org/discovery/2001/03/parser-tests/ 

    Document about the RDF schema used to describe the parser, the
    test case and the crude results of running a test with a parser.

  RDF schema file
  http://ilrt.org/discovery/2001/03/parser-tests/schema.rdfs


So what is all this?  Well Redland is used to parse various online
tests from http://www.w3.org/2000/10/rdf-tests/ with all the 5
parsers that it supports.  The results of these are crudely done by
counting triples and some RDF/XML files describing the tests and the
results are emitted:

  http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt/inputs/parsers/

e.g. http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt/inputs/parsers/rapier.rdf
describes the results for my parser Rapier.

The 5 results are then taken along with three RDF Schema files - RDF,
DC and the RDF Parser Test schema above and an expected results file
 http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt/inputs/expected.rdf
generated by me with some likely answers and all of that is merged
into a big RDF graph.

The result is the online demo but you can browse the graph itself from
http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/demo?db=pt;command=print


This is the other part of the parser testing, and probably can be
extended to read the n-triple answers from test cases and check that
they really are emitted, do the graph comparison etc. when some of
that software gets written.
