Get hands-on experience with SPARQL, the RDF query language that's become a key component of the semantic web. With this concise book, you will learn how to use the latest version of this W3C standard to retrieve and manipulate the increasing amount of public and private data available via SPARQL endpoints. Several open source and commercial tools already support SPARQL, and this introduction gets you started right away.
Begin with how to write and run simple SPARQL 1.1 queries, then dive into the language's powerful features and capabilities for manipulating the data you retrieve. Learn what you need to know to add to, update, and delete data in RDF datasets, and give web applications access to this data.

A comprehensive introduction to SPARQL tools, queries, and endpoints. The examples are illustrative and well-thought out. Some of the Fuseki material is stale already, but there is plenty here to incorporate SPARLQ into linked-data web solutions. Read full review
