XSLT+SPARQL : Scripting the Semantic Web with SPARQL embedded into XSLT stylesheets
- ISBN: 3800912899
Scripting the SemanticWeb requires to access and transform RDF data. We present XSLT+SPARQL, a set of extension functions for XSLT which allow stylesheets to directly access RDF data, independently of any serialization syntax, by means of SPARQL queries. Using these functions, XSLT stylesheets can retrieve, query, merge and transform data from the semantic web. We illustrate the functionality of our proposal with an example script which creates XHTML pages from the contents of DBpedia.
