Re: [xml-dev] XML to graph

Yes, but once the data is imported he'll want to use Cypher if he wants a declarative language for query and manipulation of the graph...

neo4j allows the importing of graphml, so I would think that was the most declarative. http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/

That would be Cypher, however it only runs on Neo4J: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cypher_Query_Language

Gremlin has the advantage it can run on multiple graph databases: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gremlin_(programming_language) 

Note you do things like can annotate any graph edge with a weight (or other property) so you can express confidence levels directly.  You can then write queries to only retrieve nodes linked by a confidence greater than some value. There are differences in how each database supports edge properties.  They can also be proxied by building new nodes to connect other nodes but that get's ugly fast if you need to do any amount of it.

In your case the problem will be building the edges (relationships) in the first place if you don't already have them.  Once you have some basic relationships built out both languages will give you capabilities for things like cluster analysis.

Which is the more declarative of the two?
