[rdfweb-dev] [ANN] Rosco, a non-judgemental RDF document checker

hi all,

Partly in response to some of the concerns about checking FOAF
documents, I've created a little experimental tool called Rosco, for
checking an RDF document against an RDF schema:

http://sw1.ilrt.org/discovery/2003/08/validation/

It finds all the classes in a schema document, and for each of these,
finds all the properties you might expect to find of that class
according to the schema, and then checks an RDF document for the
presence of those classes and properties.

There's also a version that goes through an RDF schema listing the
domains (not the ranges yet) of each class.

It's a generic tool, although the examples are from FOAF.

I hope it's useful - feedback welcome.

cheers

Libby
