MAPPING BETWEEN RDF and XML WITH XSPARQL

One of the promises of Semantic Web applications is to seamlessly deal with heterogeneous data. While the EXtensible Markup Language (XML) has become widely adopted as an almost ubiquitous interchange format for data, along with transformation languages like XSLT and XQuery to translate from one XML format into another, the more recent Resource Description Framework (RDF) has become another popular standard for data representation and exchange, supported by its own powerful query language SPARQL, that enables extraction and transformation of RDF data. Being able to work with these two languages using a common framework eliminates several unnecessary steps that are currently necessary when handling both formats side by side.
