RE: struggling to learn RDF ..
Paul, I don't know if this is a good resource for you or not, but I have a tutorial at IBM's developerWorks site on using XQuery to translate a simple XML document (the "bib" file that ships with the XQuery Use Cases) into RDF. It was intended both for RDF people wanting to learn XQuery and for XML/XQuery people wanting to learn RDF. It takes a "learning by analogy" approach: "Here's some simple XML; here's what some correspondingly simple RDF might look like, and here's the XQuery that does the translation between the two". There's a short section specifically on RDF basics. You have to go through a brief IBM "registration" process if you haven't accessed their tutorials previously, but I don't recall it being that bad: http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/edu/x-dw-xqrdf-i.html?S_TACT=104AHW 18&S_CMP=ZHP Best, Howard > -----Original Message----- > From: Paul Downey <paul.downey@w...> > Sent: Mon, 29 Nov 2004 22:26:13 +0000 > To: xml-dev@l... > Subject: Re: struggling to learn RDF .. > > > is there a good place to ask dumb newbie RDF questions? > more importantly, somewhere where i might not get dumb > answers :-) > Also can someone suggest a good book on the subject, the > O'Reilly "Practical RDF" is practicaly unreadable. > -- > Paul Downey > http://blog.whatfettle.com
