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

  1. The client obtains the query base for a query service that will accept queries in the format that it wants (e.g. OCL).
  2. 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?
  3. The results are returned as an paged RDF resource, identical to how OSLC Simple Query responds with its results.
  4. The client pages through the results.
