Re: some examples of EARL and OWL

Hi Sahdi, all,

this is great stuff. I have (more or less in parallel) been working on some
stuff to treat this kind of data in cwm (Jena is too easy, since it already
has OWL rules implemented :-) You can see my scribbles at (some of the approach there is
about dealing with the different flavours of EARL that people have at the
moment) and the stuff that deals with this aspect at - currently it is REALLY
messy and there are big gaps in it, but it's at least a holding site where
you can look at the ideas, comment, and expect to get some kind of update

One of the things I want to do is write up some clear explanations of exactly
what you do to write this yourself. It's really very very straightforward,
but it looks daunting because there are lots of terms and URI's there. Some
of that can be simplified by the use of entities, and it really is just a
matter of cut-and-paste a couple of lines.

But I am also concerned that we be able to demonstrate, for at least a couple
of platforms, how to implement this, so I am focussing my energy there. (And
this is really in my spare spare time :(
