release: beta for java

note:  the current beta release is a reference implementation that serves
as a guide for designers and developers of further thinges for different
platforms.          it is an implementation for the java platform that is seemlessly
          connected to the semantic web and the java runtime environment
          at the same time.
thingy is a semantic computing core and provides the easiest way to
startup your semantic web development and semantic computing
    * integrate/migrate systems...
    * develop solutions...
    * run your server...
    * visualize & interact with your processes...
    * build, stucture and run dynamic web applications...
    * reduce development time, save implementation  and development costs...
    * effectively managing your entire network semantically...
    * rdf interoperability (existing standards based systems can be easily
    incorporated)...    * pattern matching based searching...
    * knowledge repository

           ....with thingy


    * provides functions for the storing, searching and retrieveing of
    declarative statements.    * stores java objects in data wrappers. as a result of this approach
    you can reuse them without any conversion.    * automatically makes the conversions between data references and
    literals during the read/write process. the conversion can be
    configured and extended semantically through static parser/formatter
thingy's four components:

* thingy core
contains the capability of storing and retrieving declarative statements
by providing Thing, Statement, List and Thingy.* java adapter
provides seamless interoperability within the java platform by extending
thingy through implementing data references derivated from Thing. it also
implements various other features that make programming with thingy much
easier.it is also a reference implementation for the connection of any other data
space to integrate/migrate other platforms.* rdf adapter
provides connection with the semantic web by implementing Resource and
Literal. it also provides configurable RDF input and output through Reader
and Writer using ARP and Jena.* transformation
provides complex search and basic inference capabilities by implementing
Crawler and Transformer.
