This follows on the plea I made to think about services on top of Semantic Web / Linked Data resources. Carole called them 'top-middleware' services I think.

Would this make sense?


  -> exposes content via Generic Semantic Web interface (Sesame API?, - we have Web Service available for that.) [Note from Juande: Sesame is a web service for giving back information on astronomical object names, what's this Sesame?]
  -> RO-services expose RO specific interface for (web) applications (SOAP service, Ruby gem, etcetera?)
  -> Various web applications can perform RO-specific I/O through an application-specific user interface (typically not made by us)


  • The RO model is independently exposed (hence, RO semantics available for any tool to use)
  • Combination of exposed RO-model (RDF) and generic RDF interface would do the trick already; RO-services make it convenient and allow us to control access.
  • RO-box would be one of the applications; Taverna, myExperiment, etcetera could be others, use for annotation?
  • The RO-services hide (SPARQL) details and are RO-specific.
  • No labels
