10. Querying RDF: RDF as Data > 10.3. Inkling and SquishQL

Inkling and SquishQL

Unlike rdfDB, written in C in a Linux environment, the Inkling database was written in Java, originally on Linux and Solaris and most recently hosted and tested on Mac OS X, using several Java JDBC classes. Though I’ve tried it only on the Mac OS X environment myself, it should work in other environments that have Java installed. An additional requirement for Inkling is an installation of PostgreSQL, as it uses this database for persistent storage (unlike rdfDB, which manages its own storage).

Tip

You can view documentation and test the Inkling database online at http://swordfish.rdfweb.org/rdfquery/. You can also download source code for Inkling at this site. Note that Inkling uses PostgreSQL for its persistent data store. If you don’t want to install Inkling to your own system, you can also use the online test application, running it against your own persisted RDF/XML documents available on the Web.
