The D2RQ Platform is an open-source system for accessing relational databases as virtual, read-only RDF graphs. It offers RDF-based access to the content of relational databases without having to replicate it into an RDF store. Using D2RQ you can: Query a non-RDF database using SPARQL; Access the content of a database as Linked Data over the Web; Create custom dumps of a database in RDF formats for loading into an RDF store; Access information in a non-RDF database using the Apache Jena API.
