RIF in RDF Note Published

The Rule Interchange Format Working Group has published a Group Note of RIF In RDF. This document specifies a reversible mapping (or transformation) from Rule Interchange Format (RIF) XML documents to Resource Description Framework (RDF) graphs. This mapping allows the contents of RIF documents to be interoperably stored and processed as RDF triples, using existing serializations and tools for RDF. When used with the standard mapping from RDF triples to RIF frames, this also provides a “reflection” or “introspection” mechanism, an interoperable way for RIF rules to operate on RIF documents.
