Hi All,

I've just uploaded version 0.3 of the Veudas Javascript RDF Browser /
Editor to sourceforge.

This version adds support for Joseki - the Jena RDF Server; this is in
addition to the existing Sesame-1.0 support. 

For anybody interested: My experience was that Joseki has a (for me)
nicer http web api (more restful, takes notice of Accept/Content-type
headers, leaves security to the container), but has less functionality
on the querying front.

In particular, I couldn't find any way to do optional queries, so
Veudas has to do multiple queries to fetch optional labels and schema
information. (the main view panel requires 7 queries to Sesame's 2).
Also, I couldn't find any way to do case-insensitive string queries,
so the label search function is case sensitive for Joseki.
I may have missed something, so if anybody knows how to do either of
these things please drop me a mail.

Also in this release is the ability to swap between stores of
different types - e.g. you can switch from a sesame to joseki or
cgi-file store and back again in the same session. RDF Stores are
configured via an XML file (which is different from the previous
release, so it's worth looking at the docs). 

I've tested this release with mozilla (should also work with firebird)
and IE6.

Cheers,

Phil

P.S. I'm going on holiday for a week on friday, so if you don't get
any response to emails - that's why!
