The growing impact of Semantic Wikis deduces the importance of finding a strategy to store textual articles, semantic metadata and management data. Due to their different characteristics, each data type requires a specialized storing system, as inappropriate storing reduces performance, robustness, flexibility and scalability. Hence, it is important to(More)
We propose a new memory model called short-term memory for managing objects on the heap. In contrast to the traditional persistent memory model for heap management, objects in short-term memory expire after a finite amount of time, which makes deallocation unnecessary. Instead, expiration of objects may be extended, if necessary, by refreshing. We have(More)

Applications based on KiWi can therefore leverage i.a. reasoning and versioning to follow both aspects and even go beyond existing technologies. For example, KiWi allows composition of content items, which poses a challenge to the(More)
