Almost 50 millions Semantic Web documents are available on the Web in RDF format and can be readily used into applications or web sites. Similarly, exposing ones data as Semantic Web data has an unprecedented potential for advertising products and services. In this presentation I will specifically: * Give a pragmatic introduction to the Semantic Web Initiative and the existing technologies. * Illustrate some java tools to build applications and web sites using semantic web data. Among these Sindice, DBin (a rich platform based on Eclipse), Semantic Web Pipes * Show how to publish Semantic Web data in a way which is both efficient and guarantees maximum precision and recall when harvested by clients or semantic web enabled Search Engines thanks to the Semantic Sitemap Extension. The presentation will be largely demo driven, with several third parties applications being shown both publishing and reusing data leveraging the above technologies.
