Demonstration of Comunica, a Web framework for querying heterogeneous Linked Data interfaces

by Joachim Van Herwegen, Ruben Taelman, Miel Vander Sande, and Ruben Verborgh

Linked Data sources can appear in a variety of forms, going from SPARQL endpoints to Triple Pattern Fragments and data dumps. This heterogeneity among Linked Data sources creates an added layer of complexity when querying or combining results from those sources. To ease this problem, we created a modular engine, Comunica, that has modules for evaluating SPARQL queries and supports heterogeneous interfaces. Other modules for other query or source types can easily be added. In this paper we showcase a Web client that uses Comunica to evaluate federated SPARQL queries through automatic source type identification and interaction.
