Dear All,

My question is how can I express the following relationships from a relational database in RDF or RDFS:

  1. Inheritance relationships: "is-a" and "has-a" relations.
  2. Aggregation relationship: "is-part-of".
  3. 1-1 relationship.
  4. 1-many relationship.
  5. many-to-many relationship.

please, if you can provide references.

If you get no answers, that is usually an indication that you have not provided sufficient details for it to be an answerable question. Show what you have tried or what you have read, what your current (partial) solution does and does not do, where exactly in your thinking about this you are stuck.

You can use the 'edit' link on your question (below the question text, on the left) to update the question with these additional details.

Sorry for that question, the answer is too long and need too much explanations. I expressed the above mentioned relations in OWL.

Consider you have data and now you need to put in relationships with that data. I would suggest you to have a bit of Study on Ontologies which would help you to understand this process. Mostly check out FOAF Ontology to start with and you would be clear with your question's answer!! :)
