Ontology Editor for Oracle 10g

As of version 1.1.4, TopBraid Composer is the first ontology editor to support Oracle 10g RDF databases. While previous versions already supported Oracle via the generic Jena database back-end, we now also have a back-end using Oracle's native RDF support. This means that users can directly edit an Oracle RDF database and use Oracle-specific features in their applications.

It is great to see that a big name like Oracle has entered the RDF world. While their RDF support still needs some more work (especially with the treatment of blank nodes - see my corresponding thread in their forum), I hope that having an ontology editor for it will spark some more interest in this platform.
