Stanbol is a software application which helps traditional content management systems to get ready for the emerging linked data web. It also provides a flexible framework for building modularized RESTful applications and includes Apache Clerezza for processing RDF data. Its goal is to provide Web and CMS developers with a set of HTTP/RESTful services to help them integrate semantic technologies into their products and web sites.

Instant Apache Stanbol How-to gives you detailed recipes on how to get the power of Stanbol to your application. It will give you precise instruction on how to get more out of your data and show you the power of semantic data, thereby helping you to make your information richer and easier to find.

Instant Apache Stanbol How-to gives an introduction to the various aspects of Stanbol. Clear and practical recipes will help you start taking advantage of Stanbol in your applications. It gets you started into semantic technologies quickly and painlessly.

You will learn how metadata can facilitated by finding the relevant information. Also you will learn about the Stanbol architecture and how to extend Stanbol and make it even more powerful to suit your needs. The recipe will guide you through accessing Stanbol, building your own Semantic RESTful API by using JAX-RS, OSGi services, and the Apache Clerezza RDF facilities.

Reto Bachmann-Gmür

Reto Bachmann-Gmür, first learned about the Web in 1996, and believed it to be the perfect opportunity to combine his passion for technology with his desire to do something socially relevant. However, he got buried under information overload of the Web, and hardly got a chance to breathe until he finally heard about the semantic Web in 2002. He started development on various open source projects that were designed as better means to deal with the ever-growing information, ideally of course in a decentralized fashion without any position, and which were able to control the free flow of information. He worked on Graph Versioning with the Jena team at HP Laboratories, and on Semantic Content Management with Adobe. Since he hasn't fixed the world yet, he's increasingly trying to get others to do the job, partially with his consulting firm and partially fathering his 10-year-old son, ultimately spending less time fixing and more time enjoying.

He's a member of the Apache foundation and is active in various Semantic Web-related Apache projects.
