It’s now only a few days until 2007, and a good time for the yearly prediction posts to start rolling out - including one from Mashable. To add a more interesting spin, we’ll throw in a mini-game of blog tag - a few people “tagged” at the end of t
Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source Java software development framework that makes writing AJAX applications like Google Maps and Gmail easy for developers who don't speak browser quirks as a second language. Writing dynamic web applications today

We believe that the enterprise ontology will become a cornerstone in many information systems in the future. In general terms, an ontology is an organization of a body of knowledge or, at least, an organization of a set of terms related to a body of know
I will discuss how RSS and its taxonomy module can be used as a central format to carry metadata collected in a classical news format, such as XMLNews-Story, to RDF or relational databases and XML Topic Maps. Readers should have basic familiarity with RSS
From legacy relational databases to the semantic web, the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CATCM), where over 70 legacy relational databases are semantically interconnected by an ontology with over 70 classes and 800 properties, providing in
In this article, I will discuss how RSS 1.0 and its taxonomy module can be used as a central format to carry metadata collected in a classical news format, such as XMLNews-Story, to RDF or relational databases and XML Topic Maps. Readers should have basic
The Role of Semantic Web in Web 2.0: Partner or Follower? Currently, the web phenomenon that is driving the best developers and captivating the best entrepreneurs is Web 2.0. Web 2.0 encompasses some of today's most exciting web-based applications: mas
Data on the Semantic Web is semi-structured and does not follow one fixed schema. Faceted browsing is a natural technique for navigating such data, partitioning the information space into orthogonal conceptual dimensions. Current faceted interfaces are ma
Abstract from downloadable PDF: Data on the Semantic Web is semi-structured and does not follow one fixed schema. Faceted browsing is a natural technique for navigating such data, partitioning the information space into orthogonal conceptual dimensions.
The Semantic Web is expected to provide more benefits to software engineering. Over the past five years there have been a number of attempts to bring together languages and tools, such as the UML, developed for Software Engineering with Semantic Web langu
[Sample clip]: For two systems to communicate they must commit to a common ontology. It doesn't matter how elegant or clever your ontology is, if no one else shares it, you don't participate in anything broader than your own ontology...
Welcome to the official 4th European Semantic Web Conference site. ESWC 2007 will take place from 3-7th, June 2007 in the Tyrol region of Innsbruck, Austria. This year's event will host a variety of workshops, tutorials, demonstrations and posters ded
This diagram depicts a spectrum of information sharing capabilities. Moving from lower right to upper left of the diagram, we see that more expressive forms of metadata and semantic modeling encompass the simpler forms, and extend their capabilities. From
Semantic technologies have become central to a broad range of research and development initiatives. This diagram visualizes the intersections of four major development themes in the semantic wave: networking (e.g., semantic web, grid & p2p), content (e.g.
