Instance Store

Instance Store is a

> Java application for performing efficient and scalable Description Logic (DL) reasoning over individuals

What does this mean? It's an attempt to build a system that can reason (using OWL, for instance) across a large set of instances.

Apparently it stores individuals in a RDBMS, such as MySQL or Oracle. It then connects that store to a reasoner, such as Racer or FaCT++. I haven't tried it yet, but I will soon, so I'm storing this here for future reference.

Would be interesting to see if plugging this directly into Oracle 10g's RDF store provides any benefits.

I should note that a quick glance at the code indicates that it hasn't been touched in about two years.
