Bridging the Semantic Web and Web 2.0 with Representational State Transfer (REST)

Robert Battle, Edward Benson


Semantic Web technologies must integrate with Web 2.0 services for both to leverage each others strengths. We argue that the REST-based design methodologies of the web present the ideal mechanism through which to align the publication of semantic data with the existing web architecture. We present the design and implementation of two solutions that combine REST-based design and RDF data access: one solution for integrating existing web services and one server-side solution for creating RDF REST services. Both of these solutions enable SPARQL to be a unifying data access layer for aligning the Semantic Web and Web 2.0.
