Implementing SPARQL Endpoint Web Portals


A general theme in this book is building Web 3.0 systems in light and flexible ways using the Ruby scripting language combined with existing libraries and applications. I believe that as more “smart,” semantically rich data becomes available, the economy-of-scale arguments in favor of using very large systems as opposed to smaller systems diminish because accessing data to drive smaller web portals becomes easier. As it becomes technically easier to federate smaller systems, I expect to see more special-purpose niche applications that interoperate. Combined with an aggressive use of open source software to reduce development costs, smart data sources will make the development, deployment, and maintenance of many small interconnected systems economically feasible. The examples in this chapter demonstrate simple ways to publish semantically rich data.
