RDF Serialization: N3 and N-Triples

Though RDF/XML is the serialization technique used in the rest of this book, another serialization technique supported by many RDF applications and tools is N-Triples. This format breaks an RDF graph into its separate triples, one on each line. Regardless of the shorthand technique used within RDF/XML, N-Triples generated from the same RDF graph always come out the same, making it an effective way of validating the processing of an RDF/XML document. For instance, the test cases in the RDF Test Cases document, part of the RDF specification, are given in both the RDF/XML format and the N-Triples format to ensure that the RDF/XML (and the underlying RDF concepts) are consistently interpreted.
