Closed World Machine

  • The CWM tool combines the four databases and the four N3 files, producing a unified RDF view of the Palm data.

  • CWM also expands logical inferences.

  • The resulting RDF is used for publication:

    <palm:Appointment rdf:about="file:/home/ndw/.xmlDate.rdf#extreme2002">
      <db:palmid>16234390</db:palmid>
      ...
      <p:loc>Montreal, Quebec, CA</p:loc>
      <p:uri>http://www.extrememarkup.com/extreme/</p:uri>
      <p:hotel rdf:resource="file:/home/ndw/.xmlAddr.rdf#wyndham-montreal"/>
    </palm:Appointment>
    

(Actually, a little XSLT massages the RDF to make it easier for subsequent XSLT processing.)
