The necessity of hypermedia RDF and an approach to achieve it

by Kjetil Kjernsmo

This paper will give an overview of the practical implications of the HATEOAS constraint of the REST architectural style, and in that light argue why hypermedia RDF is a practical necessity. We will then sketch a vocabulary for hypermedia RDF using Mike Amundsen’s H Factor classification as motivator. Finally,we will briefly argue that SPARQL is important when making non-trivial traversals of Linked Data graphs, and see how to a bridge between Linked Data and SPARQL may be created with hypermedia RDF.
