Preface > Structure of This Book

Structure of This Book

The first section of this book (Chapter 1 through Chapter 6) focuses on the RDF specifications. Chapter 1 focuses on introducing RDF, but more than that, it also looks at some of the historical events leading up to the current RDF effort. In addition, this chapter also looks at issues of when you would, and would not, use RDF/XML as compared to “standard” XML.

Following the introductory chapter, the rest of the first section covers the RDF specification documents themselves. This includes coverage of the RDF Semantics and Concepts and Abstract Model specifications (covered in Chapter 2); the basic XML syntax (covered in Chapter 3); coverage of some of the more unusual RDF constructs—containers, collections, and reification (covered in Chapter 4); and the RDF Schema (covered in Chapter 5). As a way of pulling all of the coverage together, Chapter 6 then uses all we’ve learned about RDF to that point to create a relatively complex vocabulary, which is then used for demonstration purposes throughout the rest of the book.
