Example of SQL-based RDB2RDF Mapping: Revision 3

Jump to: navigation, search

A sample relational schema:

DEPT table

 deptno  NUMBER       UNIQUE
 dname   VARCHAR2(30)
 loc     VARCHAR2(100)

EMP table

 empno  NUMBER        PRIMARY KEY
 ename  VARCHAR2(100)
 job    VARCHAR2(30)
 deptno NUMBER        REFERENCES DEPT(deptno)
 etype  VARCHAR2(30)

LIKES table -- attr-val table (sample row: "xyz.com/100" "likesPlaying" "Soccer")

 id       VARCHAR2(4000)
 likeType VARCHAR2(30)
 likedObj VARCHAR2(100)

A mapping specification (for mapping the above relational schema to RDF):

This specification maps the example relational schema to RDF using Turtle syntax. This example includes:

o bNode instance ID and IRI instance ID
o inverse expression
o rdf:type columns 
o computed properties
o destination graphs (either at class-level or at instance-level)
o foreign key constraint
