Actions tracking for Post Last Call.

RDF-WG possible impact points

  1. Simple literals: simple literals are xsd:string in the abstract syntax
  2. Plain literals with language tags
  3. Graph identification
  4. Turtle syntax


Necessary before 2LC

  • Sort out scope rules and "BGP BIND"
  • Grammar
    • Consider ORDER BY count(*) (supported in SQL, just need to remove restriction in SPARQL)
      • Change grammar note 13 (which wasn't in 1LC at all)
      • "For each expression E in SELECT and each HAVING(E) in Q" ==> "For each expression E in SELECT and each HAVING(E) and each ORDER BY(E) in Q"
      • Note in 2LC changes.
      • Put "Aggregate" in BuiltInCall (HAVING requires unnecessary brackets at the moment)
    • ConstructTemplate == TriplesTemplate
  • See SPARQL_Namespaces : Update page at the namespace URI of SPARQL functions
  • IRIs for all functions (namespace document ?)
  • deal with escaping rules (red box)
  • LC pub changes: msg

Not Andy:

  • Check reformatting and edits in "17.4 Operator and Function Definitions"


  • Make sure it says functions and aggregates generating errors can be overridden (present in SPARQL 1.0 ; unclear in SPARQL 1.1 Query) (Steve)


  • Prepare for RDF 1.1
    • REGEX, REPLACE to take all string-like forms as first argument (includes literals with language tag).
    • Check for others
    • Datatype(?x) to return rdf:langString on literals with a language tag
    • DATATYPE: Note change from SPARQL 1.0. (mark "at risk")
  • Reformat function prototypes - reenable CSS
  • Remove SHA224
  • Update OWL reference (from comment IH-2)
  • Function SUBSTR says "xsd:integer" : should say including derived types of integer.
  • Grammar fix : ASK with GROUP BY, HAVING ASK now takes solution modifiers.
  • Grammar notes need to have a point about aggregates and location.
  • check CONSTRUCT WHERE short form.
  • Sections 11 and 12: remove algebra. See CommentResponse:IH-1 (Steve)

Desirable to do (may not happen ; time dependent)

  • Move string literals argument type sections to near defn of simple literal.
  • (unlikely) Query forms CONSTRUCT, ASK


Service Description

SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol

JSON result format

  • The JSON Note used "typed-literal"; the spec change/fixed that but should explicitly note it.
