3. The Basic Elements Within the RDF/XML Syntax

Chapter 3. The Basic Elements Within the RDF/XML Syntax

The usability of RDF is heavily dependent on the portability of the data defined in the RDF models and its ability to be interchanged with other data. Unfortunately, recording the RDF data in a graph—the default RDF documentation format—is not the most efficient means of storing or retrieving this data. Instead, transporting RDF data, a process known as serialization, usually occurs with RDF/XML.

Originally, the RDF model and the RDF/XML syntax were incorporated into one document, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) Model and Syntax Specification. However, when the document was updated, the RDF model was separated from the document detailing the RDF/XML syntax. Chapter 2 covered the RDF abstract model, graph, and semantics; this chapter provides a general introduction to the RDF/XML model and syntax (RDF M&S).
