The SPARQL2XQuery Framework bridges the gap and create an interoperable environment between the Web of Linked Data (OWL/RDF/SPARQL) and the XML (XML Schema/XML/XQuery) worlds. Using the SPARQL2XQuery Framework, XML datasets can be turned into SPARQL endpoints.

The SPARQL2XQuery Framework provides a generic method for SPARQL to XQuery translation, with respect to a set of predefined mappings between ontologies and XML Schemas.

Particularly, the SPARQL2XQuery Framework provides mechanisms for: (a) Query translation (SPARQL to XQuery) (b) Mapping specification & generation (Ontology to XML Schema) and (c) Schema transformation (XML Schema to OWL).
