Towards Description Set Profiles for RDF using SPARQL as Intermediate Language

Download PDF Read Online

Description Set Profiles (DSP) are used to formulate constraints on valid data within a Dublin Core Application Profile. For RDF, SPARQL is generally seen as the method of choice to validate data according to certain constraints, although it is not ideal for their formulation. In contrast, DSPs are comparatively easy to understand, but lack an implementation to validate RDF data. In this paper, we use SPIN as basic validation framework and present a general approach how domain specific constraint languages like DSP can be executed on RDF data using SPARQL as an intermediate language.
