Fluxion DataPublisher

The Fluxion DataPublisher is the part of the Fluxion Framework that exposes data from an existing datasource as OWL, making it available on the semantic web. It does this by automatically generating an ontology to represent the existing datasource, then dynamically converting data from the native datasource into OWL individuals.

The DataPublisher serves as both a toolkit for exposing data, and an API to code against. It is possible to write plugins to connect the DataPublisher to any existing datasource. We currently provide plugins to connect to relational databases in commonly used formats.

To find out how to go about publishing a new datasource using the DataPublisher, or subsequently incorporating it into the Fluxion Data Integration framework, read the "5 minute intro" guide.
