Original Abstract

This article compares the Semantic Web RDF (Resource Description Framework) to a worldwide distributed database. Reasons are given for treating such database as an object-oriented one. The article lists the similarities and differences between RDF and object databases, gives reasons for extracting object data from RDF and shows the kinds of structures that can be discovered in RDF graphs, discusses and unifies different approaches for querying and navigating object-oriented and RDF data graphs and builds a simple formal model of an object-oriented database on top of the model-theoretic RDF semantics.
