Problems of the RDF syntax – RDF/XML, RDFa, Turtle, JSON-LD…
July 21, 2011
Check out the new blog post Problems of the RDF syntax:
An RDF syntax (notation) is a concrete syntax for writing (serializing) RDF triples. There are many different notations, some of which are based on existing formats (XML, (X)HTML, JSON), while others use special formats (Turtle).
The problems of the RDF model, discussed in the previous posts, are inherited by RDF notations. Various special cases require special support in a syntax, which makes it more complex. However, RDF notations contain a number of their own problems, which can be divided into two categories:
- various problems in RDF notations
- the lack of a single dominant notation
