splitting the Atom with N3

Atom N3 is an ontology that closely maps the Atom feed format to N3. It clearly reveals the logical structure of the atom feed format, and is what is needed to make atom:

  • easily and clearly extensible
  • available to SPARQL queries
  • easily mappable to java objects through frameworks such as So(m)mer

With the xslt 2.0 stylesheet I developed I will be able to use atom-n3 to load feeds into an rdf database and map that information to java objects in one go. This will help me implement the Atom Publishing Protocol for BlogEd. The nice thing is that the stylesheet should be useable by people using any other programming language, so others who may need the transform could help improove it too.

This is continuation of the work I started in 2004, that was much improoved by some serious thinking last autumn with Reto in Bern and Danny Ayers and Reto in Tuscany. So there has been quite a lot of thinking put into this over time, and I am quite confident that we are coming close to a 0.9 release. I will certainly be using it. It is open source and released under a BSD licence, so please feel free to contribute bug reports/fixes code and ideas!

We are going to release a lot of stored up energy here :-)
