Easier querying of strings with RDF 1.1 - bobdc.blog
When dealing with the difference between simple literals and those that were explicitly cast as xsd:string values, casting in one direction or the other with the str() and xsd:string() functions gave us a workaround, but once all the query engines catch up with RDF 1.1 we won't have to work ...

- Historically RDF text literals had a language (specified by xml:lang in striped syntax) whereas string literals did not. What's happened there?Mar 8, 2014
- Hi Bob,
I was going through some of your SPARQL examples, but the ontologies at
http://learningsparql.com/ns/... don't seem to be there any more! Are they gone for good or have they moved?May 12, 2014
- Hi Dimitar,
There are no ontologies for these examples. It's just a namespace name, which is why I included /ns/ in the URI.
If I was going to create a data model to drive an application, I would store it at the URI, but for the little examples I created the triples used in the examples were self-sufficient.
