The Semantic "Events" Web

Guest Author

The new Semantic Web-like Oracle Events application is out there. Call it a mashup of Google Maps, Siderean Seamark, and Oracle Secure Enterprise Search.

I, for one, think this is the coolest app ever to appear with an Oracle.com header on it - by far.

The "technology creep" intentionally initiated by OTN Semantic Web Beta continues, all according to plan. (Insert evil laughter here.)

    Great Application. Do you know if there are any plans later to allow events from User Groups (OAUG, IOUG etc) to be aggregated as well?

    Ameed, we do plan to upload third-party events into the Events database at some point in the near future.

    What was the mashup built with? We're trying to figure out if mashups can work in our environment which contains GIS data, oracle data, etc. Any links to provide additional information on mashups would be appreciated.

    Jeff, this is Siderean + Oracle Database + Google Maps API.
