Abstract

The growing importance of RDF as a tool for describing information on the Web has risen a number of interesting works regarding the management of RDF documents. The effective management of RDF data has been an increasingly pressing active area of the current research. However current data management solutions for RDF data present the following shortcomings: (i) they often define new query languages difficult to integrate in database applications, with a consequent lack of uniformity among the different approaches, (ii) they present extendibility limitations, and (iii) most of them are considered complicated by the final user. In this paper we propose a feasible and intuitive approach for practical RDF management, providing a logical organization technique for RDF data, making use of a formalism to represent concepts and properties of RDF and RDF(S), and an extension of a DataLog rule system for querying RDF documents.
