Description

RDFSharp is a library designed to ease the creation of .NET applications based on the RDF data model, providing users with a straightforward solution for start playing with RDF and Semantic Web concepts.


RDFSharp, which is constantly under development, has a modular architecture made up of four layers:

  • MODEL
    • Create and manage RDF models (namespaces, datatypes, resources, literals, triples, graphs, ...);
    • Exchange them using standard RDF formats (N-Triples, Turtle, RDF/XML, TriX);
  • STORE
    • Create and manage RDF stores as portable databases optimized for storage of RDF data;
    • Create and manage RDF federations as virtual stores giving integrated access to multiple stores;
  • QUERY
    • Create and execute RDF queries on graphs, stores and federations to retrieve RDF data;
  • SEMANTICS
    • Create and execute RDF reasonings to exploit semantic relations between RDF data;
