RDFBeans 2.2: Now on GitHub

I am happy to announce that RDFBeans project had finished migration to GitHub and reached 2.2 version.

The most important change in this release is dropping dependency on RDF2Go API and switching to the latest and greatest Eclipse RDF4J. As you probably know, RDF4J is the new name of Sesame which already was an RDF database of choice for RDFBeans development. However, in the previous versions it was accessed via RDF2Go abstraction layer and it appears that this approach creates more problems than it solves.

Now, the framework addresses directly to the RDF4J Repository API for RDF storage functions.

Also, the project infrastructure was cardinally updated:

RDFBeans is an object-RDF mapping and persistence framework. It provides ORM-like databinding functionality to facilitate Linked Data and Semantic Web development in Java by representing domain object models as RDF resources. For detailed information, please refer to:


RDFBeans 2.0

The second edition of RDFBeans Java-to-RDF databinding framework is finally out. In 2.0 version the library underwent major refactoring to clean and enhance the API and provide new databinding techniques.

RDFBeans is an open-source object-RDF databinding and persistence library for the Semantic Web development with Java language. It provides a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model to RDF resource descriptions.

RDFBeans: Now on Sourceforge

RDFBeans framework (see “Simple RDF data binding“) is a Sourceforge project now:


Simple RDF data binding

A large part of SW development is representing the information as RDF for persistence and interoperability. It’s usually done with lots of the glue code to map the programming object model to RDF triples and vice versa.

DOAP, FOAF and SourceKibitzer

I contributed some code to generate DOAP/FOAF metadata from SourceKibitzer‘s project and user profiles. My add-ons have been deployed recently, so SK is one of the largest (600+ projects) DOAP repositories now.
