SPARQLAS-Implementing SPARQL Queries with OWL Syntax

Using SPARQL for writing queries on OWL-DL ontologies can be complicated due to its RDF triple semantics. Translating OWL expressions to this semantics is a non-trivial problem. We present SPARQLDL Abstract Syntax (SPARQLAS), a proper subset of SPARQL, to solve this issue by employing the OWL Functional-Style Syntax to compose queries. We illustrate how the… CONTINUE READING
