Subject: ANNOUNCEMENT: RDF Modeller - Modelling RDF graphs graphically


                   RDF Modeller 1.0
       http://www.mimesweeper.com/research/rdf.asp

"The RDFModeller was developed in conjunction with Oxford Brookes
University, School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences (UK). Craig
Pugsley, a student from the school, developed the modeller at Baltimore
Technologies Research Department as a project to learn both Java programming
and the basics of RDF. The RDFModeller is an ongoing project..."

The RDF Modeller allows the graphical manipulation of RDF graphs in a node
and arc structure. The RDF Modeller can read and write XML-based RDF graphs
using the Java RDF API 'Jena' developed by Brian McBride. The project is at
a very prototypical stage, so feedback is the main priority. If we can get
enough people interested, there will be a version 2!

Version 1.0 has the following (prototypical-quality) features:

  * Import and export XML-base RDF graphs using the Jena Java API
  * Support for database connectivity using a simple RDF graph to DB table
mapping
  * Support for Graham Klyne's work on Context Modelling
  * Easy to use UI enabling rapid creation and editing of RDF graphs

This is a predominantly research-based project, so please feel free to
submit feature requests or bug reports, etc.

WARNING: This is alpha quality software and there are known bugs - see the
release docs for an up-to-date bug list.

NOTE REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF SOURCE CODE: The RDF Modeller is distributed
under the open-source terms and conditions of the GPL licence. Full source
code is available from the same site as the main distribution
(http://www.mimesweeper.com/research/rdf.asp).
