ITERATIVE XML SEARCH BASED ON DATA AND ASSOCIATED SEMANTICS

Alda Lopes Gançarski, Pedro Rangel Henriques, Flávio Xavier Ferreira

Abstract

In a previous work in the context of information retrieval, XQuery was extended with an iterative paradigm. This extension helps the user getting the desired results from queries. In a related work, XQuery was also extended to allow the inclusion of SPARQL queries; this is useful when XML documents are associated with semantic RDF descriptions. However integrating SPARQL in XQuery queries makes the construction of queries more complex (although more powerful). To leverage this integration, we propose to apply the iterative paradigm to the ‘SPARQL extension to XQuery’. In the paper this proposal is introduced and justified and a case study is presented.
