Embedding SPARQL into XQuery/XSLT

Sven Groppe, Jinghua Groppe, Volker Linnemann, Dirk Kukulenz, Nils Hoeller, Christoph Reinke


The tree-based languages XQuery and XSLT for XML are widely supported. Many tools do not yet support the new RDF graph query language SPARQL. We propose to embed SPARQL subqueries into XQuery/XSLT, such that XQuery and XSLT benefit from the graph query language constructs of SPARQL, and SPARQL benefits from features of XQuery/XSLT, which SPARQL does not support. The embedding enables XQuery/XSLT tools to handle at the same time XML queries and SPARQL subqueries, and XML and RDF data.
