Service Description

Service description editor's draft.

Reviews received; awaiting editor's response.

WG issues & needed decisions

  • Availability of an unnamed graph
  • Service URI / sd:url issue (is service url the service node, or is the service distinct from the endpoint url?)
  • Conformance text (how much force should it have in dictating what RDF must be in the SD?)
  • Does the SD doc/vocab need more terms for Dataset HTTP Protocol?

Editorial tasks

  • Add example SD in Turtle.
  • Add entailment properties to example SDs.
  • Address NicoM/Birte's comments regarding the naming and use of entailment properties.
  • Align links and text with protocol document (Greg, Lee) - note dependency on protocol here
  • Add link to discussion on empty graphs in the Update document (when such a section exists)
  • Add feature URI for basic federated queries

Graph Store HTTP Protocol

SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol editor's draft.

Outstanding (post LC) issues:

  • We still lack consensus on how the URL of the Graph Store is captured in an SD document retrieved from the Dataset protocol instance. It is not clear how the SD document and the protocol work together (see: 1, 2, and 3)
  • There are some questions about whether or not the Dataset protocol should provide more comprehensive management of a Graph Store beyond just being able to POST to it (see 3).<s>

Entailment editors' draft.

WG issues & needed decisions

Editorial tasks

  • Add section about interplay between property path & entailment regimes
  • Revise D-Entailment according to the decision about canonicalisation, fixed datatype map

Federated Query

Federated query editor's draft.

WG issues & needed decisions

Editorial tasks

Pre-LC Reviewers

Reviewers are asked to comment specifically on the two approaches of presenting the semantics within the document.

JSON Results

Comments related to original Note:

CSV-TSV Results Format


See also: PostLastCall2

  • Rework examples
  • Fix up references (needs ReSpec DB to be updated - that needs links not 404'ing - depends on JSON results)
  • Make CSV header mandatory (unless overridden?)
  • Sort out CSS
  • ASK format
  • Explain that variable order results sets does not matter. Only header/row correlation matters and it has no relationship or significance to the encoded result set.
