Re: Reverse Mapping RDF2RDF

I wonder where this agenda item comes from... I guess it was triggered by my question to Michael at the SWCG call.

I did not have anything very complicated in mind, just a question... we are talking about the possibility of translating SPARQL queries to the SQL calls on-the-fly. I was just wondering whether there was a systematic consideration whether that is possible at all if I write an R2RML or use the direct mapping; if not, under which circumstances, and whether this is something that the author of an R2RML instance can influence. I saw in the inverseExpression term in R2RML; is that enough for what I meant?

Maybe some sort of primer text should include more information on that.

That is all...
