Web Service Description: RSD and RDF
Posted May 6, 2007on:
Most popular blog servers/engines such as WordPress, Drupal, Neclues and etc. are using RDS (Really Simple Discovery) to help client software like WB Editor to find the services that can be used to retrieve, modified and delete the blog posts.
Those blog servers/engines are also generating RDF (Resource Description Framework) for each blog post to give more information about the post, e.g. track back url. But not enough. I am looking for,
- RDF extension that describes the blog service API lisk WSDL dose for SOAP, so that WB Editor can generate dynamically proxies to the service.
- RDF extension that describes which HTML elements can WB Editor extract data from and then send to the blog service.
Here are some interesting references:
