agendum 4. "XQuery part of charter" taken up [from DanC_]
16:22:28 [kendall]
daveb: yes?
16:22:28 [JosD]
DirkC "Healtcare: ordering an X-Ray"use case is at
16:22:35 [kendall]
ah, thanks!
16:22:56 [ericP]
danc: striclty speaking, charter discussion is out of order, but we all need to know why it's there.
16:23:14 [kendall]
ah, i had "AprJan" instead of AprJun
16:23:16 [kendall]
16:23:33 [DanC_]
"The working group should specify at least one mechanism for exposing RDF query facilities in an XQuery environment" --
16:24:12 [ericP]
robs: we have implemented RDF query as a small extension for XQuery.
16:24:39 [ericP]
... it's a well designed QL. it would be idiotic to re-invent. one less lang for folks to learn.
16:25:32 [ericP]
howard: what does the charter language mean?
16:26:20 [ericP]
16:26:31 [ericP]
16:26:56 [ericP]
robs: there are no public documents describing the extensions to XQuery for RDF.
16:27:21 [ericP]
... can't publish this now as it's not a released product. maybe lightening talk.
16:28:17 [ericP]
... maybe we want two talk for XQuery (XQuery itself and delta to RDF QL) or just one if tight for time
16:28:28 [ericP]
patrick: what's the impelementation burden?
16:28:49 [ericP]
... is that going to bite people.
16:29:01 [ericP]
danc: i expect to find that out in the fullness time
16:29:24 [ericP]
robs: i feel like QL prefs are distracting from us from use cases.
16:30:56 [ericP]
robs: we mention derived graphs, but say inferencing is out of scope.
16:31:23 [ericP]
... shoule we come up with out-of-scope use cases showing where RDF QL fits in a bigger picture?
16:31:31 [ericP]
danc: probably a good idea.
16:32:37 [ericP]
bryan: what about 2.4, graph update facility?
16:32:57 [ericP]
danc: if we want to do graph update, we have to go back to the AC
16:34:03 [ericP]
bryan: so providing extensibility for this is in the charter, but solving the problem is not?
16:35:07 [ericP]
