  Report on Mapping Semantic Web Data with RDBMSes

  for Semantic Web Advanced Development Europe (SWAD-Europe) project
      funded by the EU IST-7 programme IST-2001-34732.

  Authors: Dave Beckett, Jan Grant

    A public report on mapping triple stores and RDBMS concentrating
    on surveying the schemas used and discussing mapping approaches
    to and from relational schemas. It describes current best
    practice for using such systems for Semantic Web data including
    feature comparisons, recommendations for particular applications
    and advice on tradeoffs.

We've tried to address:
   1. I want to implement an RDF triple store. How can I do this with
      a relational database?

   2. I have a legacy relational database. How can it be exposed as RDF?

We welcome feedback either directly or on our public mailing lists
and intend to update this over the lifetime of the project as we
develop new approaches and in line with changes to tools.
