Enterprises are increasingly using a wide range of heterogeneous information systems for executing and governing their business activities. Even if the adoption of service orientation has improved loose coupling and reusability, applications are still isolated data silos requiring complex transformation and mediation for integrating them. The W3C Linked(More)
Linked Data is not always published with a license. Sometimes a wrong license type is used, like a license for software, or it is not expressed in a standard, machine readable manner. Yet, Linked Data resources may be subject to intellectual property and database laws, may contain personal data subject to privacy restrictions or may even contain important(More)

The REpresentational State Transfer (REST) architectural style describes the design principles that made the World Wide Web scalable and the same principles can be applied in enterprise context to do loosely coupled and scalable application integration. In recent years, RESTful services are gaining traction in the industry and are commonly used as a simpler(More)
The Linked Data initiative continues to grow making more datasets available; however, discovering the type of data contained in a dataset, its structure, and the vocabularies used still remains a challenge hindering the querying and reuse. VoID descriptions provide a starting point but a more detailed analysis is required to unveil the implicit vocabulary(More)
The use of semantic and Linked Data technologies for Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is increasing in recent years. Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) data model provide several key advantages over the current de-facto Web Service and XML based integration approaches. The flexibility provided(More)
The W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP) specification defines a standard HTTP-based protocol for read/write Linked Data and provides the basis for application integration using Linked Data. This paper presents an LDP adapter for the Bugzilla issue tracker and demonstrates how to use the LDP protocol to expose a traditional application as a read/write Linked Data(More)
The W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP) candidate recommendation defines a standard HTTP-based protocol for read/write Linked Data. The W3C R2RML recommendation defines a language to map re-lational databases (RDBs) and RDF. This paper presents morph-LDP, a novel system that combines these two W3C standardization initiatives to expose relational data as(More)
