Jena Tutorials The following tutorials take a step-by-step approach to explaining aspects of RDF and linked-data applications programming in Jena. For a more task-oriented description, please see the getting started guide.
  • RDF core API tutorial
  • SPARQL tutorial
  • Using Jena with Eclipse
  • Manipulating SPARQL using ARQ

Web Authorization Protocol (OAuth) The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service, either on behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction between the resource owner and the HTTP service, or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf. click here

A 4-Dimensionalist Mereotopology by John G. Stell and Matthew West A formal ontology within the four dimensionalist (4D) paradigm, showing how the algebraic description of spatial mereotopology can be enriched to provide a mereotopology in which the entities are spatio-temporal, rather than spatial, regions. With the 4D approachit is natural to identify a period of time with all of space during that time, and thus to model temporal relations by relations between spatio-temporal regions. click here

The Open Logic Text by the Open Logic Project An open-source, collaborative textbook of formal metalogic and formal methods, starting at an intermediate level (i.e., after an introductory formal logic course). Though aimed at a non-mathematical audience (in particular, students of philosophy and computer science), it is rigorous. click here

Position Paper: Deficiencies of World Wide Web Architecture The World Wide Web is becoming global communication medium. However it was originally designed as a hyper-media system for static content. The original architecture of World Wide Web exhibits problems when applied to the current dynamic environment. click here
RDF Needs Annotations Position Paper: While the current mechanism of reification in RDF is without semantics and widely considered inappropriate and cumbersome, some form of reification – speaking about triples themselves – is needed in RDF for many reasonable applications: in particular, reification allows for enhancing triples with annotations relating to provenance, spatio-temporal validity, degrees of trust, fuzzy values and/or other contextual information. click here

Learning SPARQL, 2nd Edition Querying and Updating with SPARQL 1.1 by Bob DuCharme Publisher: O'Reilly Media Released: July 2013 ISBN 978-1-449-37143-2 Gain hands-on experience with SPARQL, the RDF query language that’s bringing new possibilities to semantic web, linked data, and big data projects. This updated and expanded edition shows you how to use SPARQL 1.1 with a variety of tools to retrieve, manipulate, and federate data from the public web as well as from private sources. click here
Linking the World's Information Linking the World's Information by Oshani Seneviratne and James Hendler Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Publishers Released: 2023 ISBN 9798400707940 Covers Berners-Lee’s development of the key protocols, naming schemes, and markup languages that led to his “world wide web” program and ultimately to the Web as we know it today. His early efforts were refined as Web technology spread around the world, and he was further guided by the work of the World Wide Web Consortium, which he founded and still directs. He was instrumental in the conceptualization and realization of the Semantic Web, a field that is gaining momentum in the age of big data and knowledge graph click here
