Connecting rails to a semantic RDF web database?

I am working on a project to connect a jena semantic web database to
rails.

I’d like to know if anyone has experience using rails with an RDF data
backend?

I found limited information about connecting rdf to rails (though an
excellent rdf.rb library exists). Ideally, I’m thinking of engineering a
connector for Active Relation to an RDF sparql endpoint. Unfortunately,
I’m
a bit hazy on the design of this connector and would appreciate some
thoughts and ideas.

Thanks.

You probably want to get in contact with Greg Kellog
(https://github.com/gkellogg), who very actively maintains the
ruby-rdf-projects: Check out his github-account, he has just recently
moved
several rdf-related projects(including sparql,
https://github.com/gkellogg/sparql, which contains a client to connect
to
sparql-endpoints). There is also a (rather silent) rdf-ruby-group at the
w3c ([email protected]), where you may find some people with
similar
interests.

Hope this helps,
cheers
Stefan

I’m curious as to why you are trying to use a Rails server for this task
as opposed to a Java-based server since your starting point is Jena?

Have you explored other interfaces to your semantic database? Ruby?

Thanks, Chuck

Is the other option to bypass Jena completely and use RDF.rb directly on
the web layer interface?

It would have been helpful if you had quoted the previous message so
that those of us that have archived (or deleted) the orginal could see
what it was all about.
