This is an interesting application. We currently store triples in a
relational database. This is quite efficient, but requires us to map
RDQL statements to SQL. If TriX works well with XQuery to the extent
that XQuery could be used as an equally convenient but more flexible
replacement for the RDQL subset that we have implemented, this would be
a strong argument. On the other hand I'm slightly concerned about the
performance of XML databases (size of RDF/XML is 7GB). Anyone have any
experience here?
