  RDF/XML Parser Tests

    An online comparison demo of 5 parsers.

  RDF Parser Tests Schema

    Document about the RDF schema used to describe the parser, the
    test case and the crude results of running a test with a parser.

  RDF schema file

So what is all this?  Well Redland is used to parse various online
tests from http://www.w3.org/2000/10/rdf-tests/ with all the 5
parsers that it supports.  The results of these are crudely done by
counting triples and some RDF/XML files describing the tests and the
results are emitted:


e.g. http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt/inputs/parsers/rapier.rdf
describes the results for my parser Rapier.

The 5 results are then taken along with three RDF Schema files - RDF,
DC and the RDF Parser Test schema above and an expected results file
generated by me with some likely answers and all of that is merged
into a big RDF graph.

The result is the online demo but you can browse the graph itself from

This is the other part of the parser testing, and probably can be
extended to read the n-triple answers from test cases and check that
they really are emitted, do the graph comparison etc. when some of
that software gets written.
