Usage Scenario: non-OSLC Simple Query queries
An OSLC AM service provider allows clients query for resources in formats other than OSLC Simple query. The service provider might provide a more powerful query engine like SPARQL, or one more natural to the domain of the resources it is managing (e.g. OMG’s OCL and QVT).
Execute a domain specific query
- The client obtains the query base for a query service that will accept queries in the format that it wants (e.g. OCL).
- The client constructs the query and executes it. What if the query can not be passed in as a query parameter because it is too long?
- The results are returned as an paged RDF resource, identical to how OSLC Simple Query responds with its results.
- The client pages through the results.
