Apache Rya Matures Open Source Triple Store Database - By Sean Michael Kerner

Sean Michael Kerner wrote an article that highlighed information regarding how the open source Apache Rya database effort is moving forward and reaching new levels of project maturity and acceptance. Rya is a RDF(resource description framework) triple store database. The project joined the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) in 2015 as an incubated project, and in September 2019 achieved what is known as Top-Level Project status. The Top-Level status is an indication and validation of the project's maturity, code quality and community. The ASF is home to Hadoop, Spark and other widely used database and data management programs. The U.S. Navy uses the open source technology for many efforts to include autonomous drones.


Open source triple store database technology used by the U.S. Navy moves forward as a stable, mature project at the Apache Software Foundation.
