First Public Working Draft: SHACL Use Cases and Requirements

Author(s) and publish date


The RDF Data Shapes Working Group has published a Working Draft of SHACL Use Cases and Requirements. To foster the development of Shapes Constraint Language (SHACL), this document includes a set of use cases and requirements that motivate a simple language and semantics for formulating structural constraints on RDF graphs. All use cases provide realistic examples describing how people may use structural constraints to validate RDF instance data. Note, this document avoids the use of any specific vocabulary that might be introduced by the SHACL specification. Learn more about the Data Activity.
