I’ll bet. Thanks again!

We are using 4store and, so far are quite happy with it. At the moment we are spending all our time fixing some stuff that we have, knowingly or unknowingly, broken.

Thanks! So what triplestore are you using now? TDB or something like SparkleDB or maybe a graph database? How you reparsed the ontology files may have decided that for you, I guess. Since this is fairly esosteric knowledge and something very few people have actually done, a technical report on it would be very informative to people like me who are trying to come to grips with this whole domain. Not that you need more work to do, I’m sure...Lee

Previously we stored data in Protégé 3 database format and the LexEVS database format. These were migrated to a triple store by reparsing the original ontology files (we didn’t try to migrate the previous formats). We were driven to make this change because we wanted a uniform way to store things and wanted to be able to provide a SPARQL based access to the underlying ontologies and metadata.

I'm interested to know what you used for your "new triple-store backend storage system" and what was involved in migrating from triples stored in a relational database (which is what I'm guessing you used previously?), and what drove you to make the change.
