Go beyond the basics to build practical, real-world Semantic Webapplications

The Semantic Web offers a revolutionary and powerful way tobuild intelligent software applications that take advantage of theinformation and services that exist on the Web, as well as withinthe enterprise. The Semantic Web delivers on the promise of "Web3.0" — facilitating automated data integration, processing,and reasoning.

This author team of Semantic Web professionals shows how toapply Semantic Web technologies to build practical, real-worldapplications and to solve real-world problems. The authors providea generous supply of working code examples showing how to putconcepts into practice.

They fully cover such key technologies as Microformats, ResourceDescription Framework (RDF), RDF Schema (RDFS), the Web OntologyLanguage (OWL), Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL), SPARQL Protocoland RDF Query Language (SPARQL).

In addition, Semantic Web Programming covers:

  • Semantic Web architectures, tools, and best practices
  • Ways in which knowledge representation and applicationintegration drive a Semantic Web application

  • The methods that integrate, align, and output data andinformation in many formats and locations

  • A look into the future of the Semantic Web, including advancedintegration and distribution, advanced reasoning, visualization,and more

  • A detailed look into the burgeoning OWL 2 W3C Recommendationsand how they will affect and improve your softwarearchitectures

  • An extensive Semantic Web application that ingests data frommany sources include Facebook, mySQL®, Jabber, and others,aligns and unifies the information, queries across the unifiedinformation and then exports to various formats

The companion Web site offers access to all related articles,complete code examples, an active blog and wiki, and any book orcode updates.
