Re: [Tracker] using tracker framework for other data

Hi Olivier,

 Tracker compiles its db schema from the ontology. There are few bits
that you must keep (the basic rdf, xsd, nrl and tracker ontologies)
and you can replace all other ontologies to build your own custom
triplet store.

 If your ontology is ready you can solve your first query in one day.
then you need to translate/insert your data.

 I am very curious on how tracker performs on such a big specific
dataset. It is not designed for that (our mind is on user data and
embedded devices) but can be an excellent test!

 good luck and feel free to post questions or write on IRC!

I'm a fan of gnome and free software and I follow tracker since long
time. In our company we are building a complex postgres database with
huge quantities of biodata. Those datas are structured by ontologies
(tissue, disease, ...). To retrieve those data, we use the mix of
technologies lucene and hibernate (indexed data and SQL queries) .
With those technologies we have limitations and advantages.

Now we want start a new project that use the SPARQL technology. I'm
wondering if tracker can be used as framework for our ontology. Is it
something crazy or possible in a reasonable amount of time (6 month
for first alpha results)?

Thank you for your amazing work!
