This isnıt library-specific, but there seems to be enough common interest
that is it worth posting here
Iım looking for good ways to address fragments of a XML resource in a RDF
expression. Specifically, Iım talking about pointing at an Xpath, something
Xpointer is an obvious option, but my impression is that it is dead in the
water, and isnıt seeing much use or development. And I realize that this
approach compromises the resourceiness of the RDF, but the use case here is
pretty much limited to a single application framework. Iım hoping to keep
it all in RDF without having to add another layer of abstraction.
The big difference between this case and the typical
http://domain/name#identifier example is that #identifier is assumed to be a
stable entity, whereas the xpath in this case is fuzzy there could be
many, or no, persName elements. So, any good options aside from Xpointer?
