Quick Play with Cayley Graph DB…

Quick Play with Cayley Graph DB and Ordnance Survey Linked Data by John Goodwin.

From the post:

Earlier this month Google announced the release of the open source graph database/triplestore Cayley. This weekend I thought I would have a quick look at it, and try some simple queries using the Ordnance Survey Linked Data.

Just unpack to install.

Loading data is almost that easy, except that the examples are limited to n-triple format and the documentation doesn’t address importing other data types.

Has a Gremlin-“inspired” query language, which makes me wonder what shortcoming in Gremlin is addressed by this new query language?

If there is, that isn’t apparent from the documentation which is rather sparse at the moment.

It will be interesting to see if Cayley goes beyond the capabilities of the average graph db or not.
