another semantic for an id. Let's talk for a minute about the
of costing systems using these specs. Remember, it's useful to
say "Comply with" without some means of showing how to comply
is a good example. Today the RFP says "comply with"
then leaves it to the local procuring agency to figure out how to determine
compliance. The GJX... IEP is better because it requires

selected IEP emerges, the system procured remains in implementation

support for RDF in the major commercial software
Next version of Oracle 10g to be released this summer has
RDF/S built in. I can attest that they've done a good job at
supporting the standard (we've been beta testing the product). Some OWL
support is currently being worked on.
Software AG (vendor of XML database Tamino) supports
RDF and OWL. They've recently integrated Ontoprise's Ontobroker engine into
Adobe has had RDF support for quite some time
I've heard rumors that IBM will announce something by the
end of the year - but these are just rumors.
