The Fundamentals of RDF Metadata

The RDF Metadata or the Resource Description Framework is one of the mechanisms that metadata process uses.  The RDF method of metadata will allow for a more expeditious and faster way to gain access to data that is apparently relevant to all users. 

Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a very effective mechanism to allow for interoperability between and among data or applications performing a method of exchanging information that is understandable by the machine instead of just being read by the machine.  It is only through the Resource Description Framework method that this interoperation between applications can happen and exist. 

The Resource Description Framework utilizes the XML software (Extensible Markup Language) as its encoding application in order for it to enforce the data being a metadata.  The use of the XML software basically allows the Resource Description Framework to be described using the web understandable format – usually via the Uniform Resource Identifier or the URI.  Incidentally, the use of the Resource Description Framework or the RDF is come up with a clear definition of the mechanism in describing the resource that using a specific application web domain without using any assumptions on it.  In addition, it allows for a clear definition of the syntax and rules used by any web domain application.  By employing such method, the defined mechanism becomes neutral, however, attaining a mechanism in clearly defining a proper description for any type of web domain. 

Essentially, the use of the RDF is for the nodes to have models together with their attributes and the values that are innately inscribed on every attribute.
