RDFSharp is a lightweight C# framework designed to ease the creation of .NET applications based on the RDF model, representing a straightforward didactic solution for start playing with RDF and Semantic Web concepts.

With RDFSharp it is possible to quickly draft Windows and Web applications capable of modeling, storing and querying RDF data.
RDFSharp has a modular API made up of four layers:
  • RDFSharp.Model
    • Create and manage RDF models (resources, literals, triples, graphs, namespaces, datatypes, ...);
    • Exchange them using standard RDF formats (NTriples, TriX, Turtle, Xml);
  • RDFSharp.Store
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing on different SQL engines (Firebird, MySQL, SQLite, SQLServer);
    • Create and manage RDF federations as virtual stores giving integrated query access to multiple stores;
  • RDFSharp.Query
    • Create and execute SPARQL queries on graphs, stores and federations to fluently query RDF data;
  • RDFSharp.Semantics (under design)
    • Create and validate RDF ontologies (classes, properties, constraints, facts, ...);
    • Create and execute RDF reasoners on them, materializing inferred RDF data;
