MooseX::Semantic - Adding RDF semantics to the Moose framework
MooseX::Semantic is a set of modules that adds a semantic layer to Moose-powered objects. Moose classes that consume the various roles MooseX::Semantic offers are interoperable with the RDF::Trine RDF framework.
MooseX::Semantic can be used on multiple levels of integration into RDF.
For basic semantic additions, the following roles are necessary:
Add URIs, datatype and language to your attributes, turning them into RDF properties.
Adds a class attribute rdf_type representing the RDF is-a relationship.
Adds an 'rdf_about' attribute to Moose objects turning them into RDF resources.
The following classes make round-tripping to/from RDF/Moose possible:
Role for exporting a Moose object to RDF, including serialization and exporting to SPARQL/U endpoints.
Creating instances of MooseX::Semantic-flavored Moose classes from RDF data.
Bulk import of multiple RDF resources.
These modules make MooseX::Semantic-enabled classes storable in a RDF::Trine::Store and handle statement obsolescence.
Assignment a RDF::Trine::Store object to a class, so objects of the class can be stored and re-imported from that store.
Role that keeps track of changes within an object's set of statements and helps keeping the statements accurate.
Extract the schema/ontology that a MooseX::Semantic class represents.
Dynamically adding MooseX::Semantic::Meta::Attribute::Trait-enabled attributes to existing classes or creating MooseX::Semantic classes directly from a schema such as FOAF.
Defines subtypes and coercions for various RDF-related data structures
Convenient way to loop through the attributes of a Moose class with regards to their RDF semantics.
Documentation is lacking, the tests would be a good starting point right now.
Context isn't properly handled right now.
Performance hasn't been considered yet.
Schema introspection without at least RDFS reasoning can only get you so far.
Recursive import is buggy.
