We are happy to announce the availability of

               -ontop- v.1.15 (Now available for Protégé 5)

a Java framework to query ontologies with mappings to databases.

If you are interested in virtual RDF graphs, R2RML mappings and/or
RDFS/OWL2QL reasoning, then -ontop- is for you. The system implements
the cutting edge SPARQL-to-SQL and query optimisation techniques that
allow it to answer SPARQL queries using SQL databases while obtaining
great  performance.

With -ontop-, you don't need to move your data from your already
efficient database in order to enjoy the benefits of the RDF data
model, the SPARQL query language or RDF/OWL2QL inference.
And there is no need for expensive ETL or forward/backward chaining either.

You can use -ontop- as an API, a SPARQL end-point, or as a Protege plugin.

The highlights of this new release include:

-Upgrade the Protege plugin to Protégé 5 !!
-New Command line interface [1]
-Better support for SPARQL BIND
-Support for SPARQL Concat and Replace
-Support for SQL Concat and Replace (in the mappings)
-Support for xsd:dateTimeStap
-Improved Optimization techniques (Contribution by Roman Konchakov)
-Implementation of Autoclosable interface for core classes in the API to support `try with resource`.
-Better support for DISTINCT modifier in the mappings.
-Bug Fixes
---Handle the 30-characters limit for variable names in Oracle.
---Fix the mapping render of Protege when multiple subjects are in the target of mapping.


The system is available for FREE at
