Oracle 11g Gains Native OWL Support

Oracle 11g will gain native OWL support.

From the article:

> (2) Native OWL inferencing (for an OWL subset that includes property characteristics, class comparisons, proprety comparisons, individual comparions and class expressions) [New API]

Way to go, Oracle! I've always had a soft spot for Oracle's RDF support. The way that you can blend RDF data sets and traditional relational data sets in the same query helps to deploy RDF slowly but surely. Not to mention that Oracle has already solved all the main problems that a RDBMS should solve (like ACID compliance, backup and recovery, strong security, wide developer toolset) makes Oracle's RDF support (and soon OWL) a strong contender for RDF data stores.
