Why one should (not) use XML for RDF?


  • Better support of tools in many programming languages and environments
  • Wide spread of XML in both business and academia
  • RDF standard states that if  RDF data is published it should be available in RDF/XML

Why not?

  • RDF/XML is complicated to understand due to the encoding of a graph in triples and finally in an XML tree
  • RDF/XML blows up files (might be mitigated by compression)
  • generates much overhead, since XML documents have to be parsed and the results additionally processed to obtain the RDF data
