LIXR: Quick, succinct conversion of XML to RDF


John McCrae, Philipp Cimiano

Publication Type: 
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
This paper presents LIXR, a system for converting between RDF and XML. LIXR is based on domain-specific language embedded into the Scala programming language. It supports the definition of transformations of datasets from RDF to XML in a declarative fashion, while still maintaining the flexibility of a full programming language environment. We directly compare this system to other systems programmed in Java and XSLT and show that the LIXR implementations are significantly shorter in terms of lines of code, in addition to being conceptually simple to understand.
