Publishing local data on the Semantic Web requires that one provide a shareable semantic data representation of that data. This paper presents a complete Model Driven Engineering (MDE) approach that allows for importing data sources into an RDF repository. First, the object domain model is mapped to an ontology and to a persistence model through annotation performed by a domain expert. Then, all other processes are automated and data transformations are generated from the mappings via model-weaving techniques.
