    phpBB 3 SIOC Reference

    What is it about?

    Unobtrusive generation of RDF instance data from phpBB 3. You simply use phpBB 3 as-is while reaping the benefit of "Linked Data Views" into your bulletin board data via the SIOC Ontology. In addition, you attain transparent integration between phpBB 3 and NNTP such that phpBB 3 data becomes accessible to NNTP aware applications.

    Why is it important?

    Unified Storage of heterogenous data originating from a variety of applications and associated protocols that is exposed as RDF instance data. Thus, benefits include:

    • SPARQL access to phpBB 3 data via a SPARQL Endpoint
    • Dereferenceable URIs (drill-down facilitating data pointers) for all data items (Entities) in the "Discussion Forum" / "Bulletin Board" domain (also referred to as Boardscape)
    • Coherent exploitation of conceptual similarities between phpBB 3 and objects in the NNTP (Usenet / newsgroups) such as two-way interaction with common date via NNTP news-reader utilities or web-based discussion forum clients bound to phpBB 3 or NNTP.

    How can one use this feature?

    • Obtain an Open Source of Commercial Edition of Virtuoso ( enable PHP Hosting Support during installation)
    • Install the virtuoso_phpbb_hosting_filesystem.vad package
    • Go to http://:[port]/phpBB3
    • Use phpBB 3 as per usual
    • Query SPARQL Data via the endpoint: http://:[port]/phpBB3 using RDF Data Source URI (Named Graph): http://:[port]/phpbb_v (for Virtual Graphs) and http://:[port]/phpbb (for Physical Graphs)

    What are the Linked Data Views supported?

    Can I See This In Action Anywhere?
