Towards generic query, update, and event languages for the Semantic Web

Wolfgang May, José Júlio Alferes, François Bry


We outline aspects of querying and updating resources on the Web and on the Semantic Web, including the development of query and update languages in course of the ReWeRSe project. When considering updates and communication of updates between autonomous sources, reactive behavior plays an important role such that an event language is required. This article provides a systematic outline of the intended research steps towards handling reactivity and evolution on the Web.
