State-of-the-art web applications fuelled by Linked Data aware microservices

Presentation in the Industry Track of SEMANTICS, September 13th, 2016, Leipzig, Germany

The presentation introduces and discusses the framework. Our experience so far shows that the framework offers a productive way of quickly developing practical applications on top of Linked Data covering various situations and domains. Code can be extensively shared across projects in the frontend as well as in the backend which shortens the application development time drastically.


State-of-the-art Web Applications using Microservices and Linked Data

Paper for the 4th SALAD workshop at ESWC, May 29th, 2016, Heraklion, Crete

Description of, a platform for building state-of-the-art web applications fuelled by Linked Data aware microservices. The platform assumes a mashup-like construction of single page web applications which consume various services. In order to reuse tooling built in the community, Linked Data is not pushed to the frontend.


An Ecosystem of User-facing Microservices supported by Semantic Models

Position paper for the 5th International USEWOD Workshop at ESWC, May 31st, 2015, Portoroz, Slovenia

Microservices promise to vastly simplify application complexity. Tiny applications offering
very specific functionality are easy to build and maintain. But how do you keep your
models in sync? Is there a way to share the microservices between parties? By leveraging
the power of semantic technologies, we can create an ecosystem in which many
microservices complete a unified model. A small semantic web to be used within an
organization. This lets organizations have a taste of semantic technologies cheaply with
minimal risk. Our strategy gives focus on supporting single page web applications, where
javascript and REST API’s are king. In this short position paper we describe an
architecture for building, combining and sharing user-facing microservices for state-of-the-
art web applications.
