August 17, 2010 – Sesame is an open source Java framework for storage, inferencing, and querying of RDF data. The recent Sesame 2.3.2 release wraps up various bugs reported from previous releases.

Features include several query languages (including SeRQL and SPARQL), inferencing support, and RAM, disk, or RDBMS storage. In addition, Sesame provides Symantec Q&A users with an exclusive translator for Q&A databases. Those using other programs can take advantage of Sesame’s data import facilities, including the ability to perform hierarchical imports in migration from a relational product.

Built around proven client-server architecture, Sesame is truly cross-platform and currently available for Microsoft Windows and Linux.
