Thanks for the link. The Sun GKE project is the one I've mentioned here a few
times. It's the one in which Fourthought is the primary contractor. I wasn't
aware that they'd made this white paper public.
I should say that the project is proving a resounding success within Sun. So
much for the idea that RDF is some academic oddity.
