Consequently, a Semantic Web developer does not need to learn and adopt a new mapping language, but he may perform the mapping task using his preferred RDF query language. 1 Motivation Despite the vision of a Semantic Web [6] and many efforts helping to realize it, the actual Semantic Web still lacks of enough semantic data. Most information is still modeled and stored in relational databases and thus out of reach for many Semantic Web applications. As a consequence, such applications need to create a corresponding mapping between the relational and the semantic models by themselves for being able to access relational data.
