Another great example of the innovation that the Liferay community keeps contributing is the recently released Liferay Linked Data Module
from IMC Technologies
. Linked Data
is an approach that lets you both publish and access data in a way that is semantically specified according to standard models, interoperable, cross-referenceable and remotely queryable. This way, you can not only tap on resources available on the web of data, such as DBpedia
, but also make your own content available (and thus reusable and cross-referenceable). This makes for mashups that operate directly on the data level, removing the need for different proprietary APIs.
IMC calls this the Linked Data inbound/outbound approach
, and here you can see a screenshot of a sample application developed to showcase the inbound approach, in which tag meanings are disambiguated by using DBpedia.
