Before you start
This tutorial is the first in a three-part series that gives you hands-on experience in using DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows software with Resource Description Framework (RDF) technology. This tutorial introduces a sample use case for an RDF application and walks you through the following steps of building and maintaining this application:
- Creating an RDF store
- Inserting data into it
- Querying the data
- Updating the data
- Maintaining the store by ensuring that statistics required for good query performance are up to date
The tutorial also includes instructions on migrating to DB2 software.
Part 2 covers more advanced topics, such as access
control and optimized stores. Part 3 explains how to
use SPARQL-specific features, such as the various query forms like
CONSTRUCT, and union of graphs.
