Sesame

Sesame is, to quote the web site where it’s supported, “...an Open Source RDF Schema-Based Repository and Querying Facility.” It’s a Java JSP/Servlet application that I downloaded and installed on my Windows box, running it with a standalone Tomcat server (Version 4.1.18).

Tip

The Sesame web site, including source for the product and documentation, is at http://sesame.aidministrator.nl/.

Once I worked through an installation problem having to do with an extraneous angle bracket in the web.xml file definition for an Oracle database installation (something the creators of Sesame have said will be fixed), getting the application to run was a piece of cake—just start Tomcat.

I installed Sesame with support for MySQL. Once I started it (see instructions), the first thing I did was load in the monsters1.rdf test document, accessed through the URL online. The document loaded fairly quickly, though the tool didn’t provide feedback that it was finished loading.
