Hi,

For my theses I implemented some programs for RDF in Java.

These include:

- a framework to convert metadata to RDF (currently supported types: HTML
and MP3 - other filetypes can easily be added)

- storing RDF in a database (through conversion of RDF to SQL with XSL)

- a search-engine for this database with the possibility to define a query
as detailed as the description of the resource

- a portal that presents a user some resources that might be of interest to
him.  A user's preferences are described in RDF and matched against the
items in the database.


This is work in progress that stopped progressing :)
The aim of this code is not to present a fully functional program.  Although
it works, lots of improvements are possible.  My task this year was to study
the possiblities of metadata for a portal and so I came up with these
programs.
I hope they can be of use to anyone, mainly because several people on this
list have asked for programs like this.

More details can be found on

Greetings,

Pieter Coucke
