Abstract

In the beginning computers understands only binary numbers in form of a sequence of 0s and 1s. Other standards like assembly languages, high level languages, that are more readable to humans, but required to be translated to machine understandable format were introduced. Also communications between computers systems required a standard as the data is in incompatible format. For the machines to be able to communicate programmers/developers have to take the task of converting this large amount of data into the format that would be understandable across all platforms in which large amount of data is lost. To avoid these problems many standards that include Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Extensible Markup Language (XML) etc were introduced. The XML paved the way for greater communication between machines, applications, browsers as well as human which prevents data loss as well. This also leads to more efficiency for storing, sharing and transportation of the data independent of the platform. This makes the data available to different kind of machines, devices, humans, computer systems, news feed etc. On the other hand, for greater efficiency in the exchange of information between computers irrespective of the language and operating system in use RDF was introduced. RDF is a step further on how computers exchange information on the web so that it would have the same meaning, well understood and processed as well as the integration of that same information. RDF is usually written in XML. This research paper aims to find out how these two documents are read and written in Object Oriented C# and compare which one is more efficient in relation to semantic web development.
