Semantic Web Stack. Semantic Web Stack The Semantic Web Stack, also known as Semantic Web Cake or Semantic Web Layer Cake, illustrates the architecture of the Semantic Web.
Overview The Semantic Web Stack is an illustration of the hierarchy of languages, where each layer exploits and uses capabilities of the layers below. It shows how technologies that are standardized for Semantic Web are organized to make the Semantic Web possible. It also shows how Semantic Web is an extension (not replacement) of classical hypertext web. The illustration was created by Tim Berners-Lee. The stack is still evolving as the layers are concretized. Semantic Web technologies As shown in the Semantic Web Stack, the following languages or technologies are used to create Semantic Web. Hypertext Web technologies The bottom layers contain technologies that are well known from hypertext web and that without change provide basis for the semantic web. Standardized Semantic Web technologies Notes Resource Description Framework (RDF): Concepts and Abstract Synt.
W3C Recommendation 10 February 2004 New Version Available: "RDF 1.1 Concepts and Abstract Syntax" (Document Status Update, 25 February 2014) The RDF Working Group has produced a W3C Recommendation for a new version of RDF which adds features to this 2004 version, while remaining compatible.
RDF/XML Syntax Specification (Revised) Abstract The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a general-purpose language for representing information in the Web. This document defines an XML syntax for RDF called RDF/XML in terms of Namespaces in XML, the XML Information Set and XML Base. The formal grammar for the syntax is annotated with actions generating triples of the RDF graph as defined in RDF Concepts and Abstract Syntax. The triples are written using the N-Triples RDF graph serializing format which enables more precise recording of the mapping in a machine processable form. The mappings are recorded as tests cases, gathered and published in RDF Test Cases. RDF Vocabulary Description Language 1.0: RDF Schema. Abstract The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a general-purpose language for representing information in the Web.
This specification describes how to use RDF to describe RDF vocabularies. This specification defines a vocabulary for this purpose and defines other built-in RDF vocabulary initially specified in the RDF Model and Syntax Specification. Contents. RDF Semantics. W3C Recommendation 10 February 2004.

This Primer is designed to provide the reader with the basic knowledge required to effectively use RDF. It introduces the basic concepts of RDF and describes its XML syntax. It describes how to define RDF vocabularies using the RDF Vocabulary Description Language, and gives an overview of some deployed RDF applications. It also describes the content and purpose of other RDF specification documents. 1. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a language for representing information about resources in the World Wide Web. RDF is intended for situations in which this information needs to be processed by applications, rather than being only displayed to people. RDF is based on the idea of identifying things using Web identifiers (called Uniform Resource Identifiers, or URIs), and describing resources in terms of simple properties and property values.
