Despite Java's support for multi-threading and concurrency constructs, developing applications that fare well on modern, multi-CPU hardware can be difficult. Alternate environments like NetKernel might be an easier path to harnessing extra processing elements.
Most organizations have yet to fully realize the SOA vision through current technologies. Remedy this problem by mixing a web-based architecture with RDF and the SKOS metadata languages.
Those looking for evidence of progress on the Semantic Web do not have to look far. Several major projects and companies are embracing the vision and technology stack like never before.
The semantic web technology stack provides several technologies for describing terms and relating them. The Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) provides a simple way to represent concept schemas like thesauri, taxonomies, controlled vocabularies, and subject headers.
Put GRDDL-enabled agents to the task of extracting valuable information from machine-processable metadata embedded in documents, courtesy of prevailing semantic web standards.
As organizations move toward describing domains of interest outside of their software systems, they'll need to decide whether to define important terms and concepts on their own or reuse more general vocabularies. See how semantic web tools can help with either strategy.
The semantic web is about machine-processable metadata. As you accumulate this information, where do you plan on putting it, and how do you plan on accessing it? Check out this open source solution.
Have you ever wondered about the syntax of a web resource name? Take a look at the semantic web through one of its lowest-level specifications.
