Tomorrow night, the Chicago Semantic Web Group will be meeting at the ITA ( map ) in downtown Chicago. The speaker will be Paul Gearon who runs the Mulgara Open Source project and is an employee of Fedora Commons.
Paul will be giving a talk about Mulgara the RDF data store he has been working on for several years. Below is the talk synopsis:
Mulgara is an open sourced RDF data store that can run in any Java environment. It has a mature codebase, starting in 2001 as a commercial system, before being open sourced in 2004.
Mulgara offers a scalable data store, with a flexible mechanism for integrating RDF from multiple sources. It supports many standards, providing a flexible and consistent means for developers to work with their data. The system supports all the major semantic web standards, REST interfaces, and provides a rule engine for logic programming. Mulgara is widely deployed in both industry and government, and provides storage the storage layer for several other systems which integrate Semantic Web data, including the Public Library of Science and Fedora Commons.
This talk will discuss some of the architecture and interfaces for Mulgara, and demonstrate the ease with which it can be deployed and accessed.
