SeRQL: A Second Generation RDF Query Language

  title={SeRQL: A Second Generation RDF Query Language},
  author={Jeen Broekstra and Arjohn Kampman},
RDF Query Language proposals are more numerous than fish in the sea1, it seems. [] Key Method This set is compiled from discussions between RDF implementors, our own experience and user feedback that we received on our work in Sesame [4], as well as general principles of query language design. We go on to show how we have compiled these requirements into drafting the SeRQL query language. SeRQL is explicitly not meant as ’yet another’ query language: its aim is to reconcile ideas from existing proposals…
RDF Querying: Language Constructs and Evaluation Methods Compared
This article is an introduction into query languages for the Semantic Web, and an in-depth comparison of the languages introduced, with a focus on few, but representative languages a necessary condition for a non-trivial comparison.
Foundations of semantic web databases
This work proposes a query language with well-defined semantics and study the complexity of query processing, query containment, and simplification of answers, including computational aspects of testing entailment and redundancy.
Toward a Natural-Language Interface in Ontologies for Disambiguation
This work describes the architecture of an NLI2O, which receives a spoken question from an Android device and transforms it into a SPARQL query, later used to access, from the ontology to query, the information requested by the user.
SPARQLeR: Extended Sparql for Semantic Association Discovery
SPARQLeR is a novel extension of the SPARQL query language which adds the support for semantic path queries and allows easy and natural formulation of queries involving a wide variety of regular path patterns in RDF graphs.
Semantic Web Query Languages
A wide range of query languages for the Semantic Web exist, ranging from pure “selection languages” with only limited expressivity, to fully-fledged reasoning languages, to general purpose languages that support multiple data representation formats and allow simultaneous querying of data on both the standard andSemantic Web.
Survey over Existing Query and Transformation Languages
From the detailed survey of a large number of query languages for accessing XML, RDF, or Topic Maps, a common classification scheme is derived that is useful for understanding and differentiating languages within and among all three areas.
D 2 . 1 Reasoning & Querying – State of the Art : Keyword-based querying for XML and RDF
An overview of the field of keyword querying for XML and RDF, aiming at enabling simple querying of semi-structured data, which is relevant e.g. in the context of the emerging Semantic Web.
Natural language interfaces to conceptual models
This thesis investigates whether usability methods such as feedback and clarification dialogs can increase the usability for end users and reduce the customisation effort for the developers of Natural Lan- guage Interface (NLI).
Quo Vadis, Web Queries?
An overview of traditional query languages for XML and RDF is presented, focused on emerging preeminent exemplars in each field, and contrasts these languages with the field of keyword querying for XMLand RDF.
I 4-D 14 Exploring and Taming Existence in Rule-based RDFQueries
This work proposes a query language for RDF, called RDFLog, with extensive blank node support, and provides both an operational and a denotational semantics of RDFLg, and shows its soundness and completeness.


Sesame: A Generic Architecture for Storing and Querying RDF and RDF Schema
This work presents an overview of Sesame, an architecture for efficient storage and expressive querying of large quantities of metadata in RDF and RDF Schema, and its implementation and the first experiences with this implementation.
The ICS-FORTH RDFSuite: Managing Voluminous RDF Description Bases
This paper advocate the use of database technology to support declarative access, as well as, logical and physical independence for voluminous RDF description bases, and presents RDFSuite, a suite of tools for RDF validation, storage and querying.
Xml schema part 2: datatypes
The XML schema provides 19 primitive types, each of which defines a number of contraining facets and the values within these facets allows the XML engine to validate the data.
Data on the Web: From Relations to Semistructured Data and XML
A Syntax for Data: Typing semistructured data and the Lore system and database products supporting XML are explained.
