CouchTM Released

Published by {{by}} on {{at}}.

Abstract:

CouchTM – the topic maps engine with CouchDB as backend – is released.

Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and indexed in a MapReduce fashion. According to the website CouchDB is:

  • A document database server, accessible via a RESTful JSON API.
  • Ad-hoc and schema-free with a flat address space.
  • Distributed, featuring robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and management.
  • Query-able and index-able, featuring a table oriented reporting engine that uses JavaScript as a query language.

Inspired by the increasing impact of NoSQL approaches like CoucDB we developed CouchTM. This a TMAPI topic maps engine which uses the CouchDB as backend. CouchTM can be used like any other Java based topic maps engine. Hans-Henning Koch’s Bachlor thesis provides more information about CouchTM (in German). CouchTM as well CouchDB are available as open source.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
