Would you like to have a standard and extensible query language for querying any blog servers? Well I have recently been working on implementing just this. Using the D2RQ library developed at the Freie Universität of Berlin and the Roller Weblogger software that is powering blogs.sun.com, I have put up a test server that maps Roller's mysql tables to the AtomOwl ontology.
- The Roller Test Server Root, where you can create an account for yourself and start your own blog.
- The The Silver Blog, is the example blog mentioned in the presentation.
- The The D2RQ mapping server, where you can find the SPARQL end point to query everything available on the blog server, or simply browse the mapped mysql database using a plain html browser.
If you are interested in doing something similar to your own blog server, or you would like to write a client (AJAX, or other) to use this, please subscribe to the AtomOwl mailing list. This is still experimental, and we need feedback make it better.
For more on AtomOwl see the development web site at https://sommer.dev.java.net/atom/, where you can pick up XSLTs and XQuery scripts to transform atom xml into AtomOwl, among other things..
