RDF and Adobe: XMP

Rather than integrate RDF into the architecture of a tool from the ground up, as occurred with the previous applications discussed in this chapter, other companies are incorporating RDF and RDF/XML into their existing applications. Adobe, a major player in the publications and graphics business, is one such company. Its RDF/XML strategy is known as XMP—eXtensible Metadata Platform. According to the Adobe XMP web site, other major players have agreed to support the XMP framework, including companies such as Microsoft.

XMP focuses on providing a metadata label that can be embedded directly into applications, files, and databases, including binary data, using what Adobe calls XMP packets—XML fragments that can be embedded regardless of recipient format. Regardless of where the material is moved or located, the data contained in the embedded material moves with it and can be accessed by external tools using the XMP Toolkit. Adobe has added support for XMP to Photoshop 7.0, Acrobat 5.0, FrameMaker 7.0, GoLive 6.0, InCopy 2.0, InDesign 2.0, Illustrator 10, and LiveMotion 2.0.
