Logic Programming Languages for Databases and the Web

  • Sergio Greco
  • Francesca A. Lisi


This chapter contains a reference selection of Italian contributions in the intersection of Logic Programming (LP) with databases and the (Semantic) Web. More precisely, we will survey the main contributions on deductive databases such as the coupling of Prolog systems and database systems, evaluation and optimization techniques, Datalog extensions for expressing nondeterministic and aggregate queries, and active rules and their relation to deductive rules. Also we will illustrate solutions employing LP for querying the Web, manipulating Web pages, representing knowledge in the Semantic Web and learning Semantic Web ontologies and rules.
