Defining and validating transformations of uml models
RDF provides a common framework for expressing this information so it can be exchanged between applications without loss of meaning.
Since it is a common framework, application designers can leverage the availability of common RDF parsers and processing tools.

Changes The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a language for representing information about resources in the World Wide Web.
Other Parts of the RDF Specification 7.1 RDF Semantics 7.2 Test Cases 8. It is particularly intended for representing metadata about Web resources, such as the title, author, and modification date of a Web page, copyright and licensing information about a Web document, or the availability schedule for some shared resource.
References 8.1 Normative References 8.2 Informational References 9. However, by generalizing the concept of a "Web resource", RDF can also be used to represent information about things that can be on the Web.
RDF is based on the idea of identifying things using Web identifiers (called .
W3C's role in making the Recommendation is to draw attention to the specification and to promote its widespread deployment.
This enhances the functionality and interoperability of the Web.
(Document Status Update, 25 February 2014) The RDF Working Group has produced a W3C Recommendation for a new version of RDF which adds features to this 2004 version, while remaining compatible.
Please see "RDF 1.1 Primer" for a new version of this document, and the "What's New in RDF 1.1" document for the differences between this version of RDF and RDF 1.1.
The following documents contribute to the specification of RDF: This Primer is intended to provide an introduction to RDF and describe some existing RDF applications, to help information system designers and application developers understand the features of RDF and how to use them.
