BrownSauce

After you’ve worked with RDF/XML for a while, you can read the formatted data and the structures quite easily. However, many people prefer to use a visual tool of some form for this purpose. There are graphical tools and editors, which I’ll discuss later, but for now I want to demonstrate BrownSauce, a specialized RDF/XML browser.

One of the most useful tools I used while writing this book was BrownSauce, a Java-based RDF/XML browser created by Damian Steer. It’s web based but can run locally on your desktop even if you don’t have a web server installed; the only requirement is a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). BrownSauce parses RDF/XML documents and transforms them into a very readable format. One of its better features is its addition of hypertext links from the properties and classes in the RDF/XML document to the actual vocabulary schema definition in a separate page.
