Continuous Integration for XML and RDF Data

Sandro Cirulli (Oxford University Press)


At Oxford University Press we build large amounts of XML and RDF data as it were software. However, established software development techniques like continuous integration, unit testing, and automated deployment are not always applied when converting XML and RDF since these formats are treated as data rather than software.

In this paper we describe how we set up a framework based on continuous integration and automated deployment in order to perform conversions between XML formats and from XML to RDF. We discuss the benefits of this approach as well as how this framework contributes to improve both data quality and development.
