Semantic Web Application development with LITEQ

[go to overview]

The Semantic Web is intended as a web of machine readable data where every data source can be the data provider for different kinds of applica- tions. However, due to a lack of support it is still cumbersome to work with RDF data in modern, object-oriented programming languages, in particular if the data source is only available through a SPARQL endpoint without further documen- tation or published schema information. In this setting, it is desirable to have an integrated tool-chain that helps to understand the data source during development and supports the developer in the creation of persistent data objects. To tackle these issues, we introduce LITEQ, a paradigm for integrating RDF data sources into programming languages and strongly typing the data. Additionally, we re- port on two use cases and show that compared to existing approaches LITEQ performs competitively according to the Halstead metric.
