Jena is an open-source, Java-based semantic web framework for building intelligent, data-rich applications. Jena provides a programming environment for semantic technologies including RDF, OWL, and SPARQL, as well as support for rule-based inferencing. In this session, we’ll work through examples that illustrate:
  • how to develop a semantic application using N3, the easy to understand semantic web language.
  • how to separate facts from ontologies
  • how rules can be used to augment semantic reasoning
  • using the Jena Java framework API and illustrate how it can be used to provide an intelligent underpinning for your applications.

Frank Coyle is the director of the Software Engineering program in the Lyle School of Engineering at Southern Methodist University (SMU), Dallas Texas. His research is in the area of web services and semantic web technologies. At SMU, he teaches classes in semantic web technologies and has written a server-based Java (Jena) tool for executing SPARQL queries over RDF/N3 facts, ontologies and rules. He has extensive conference speaking experience and is the author of XML Web Services and the Data Revolution, published by Addison Wesley.
