The RDF Import tool is used to import RDF from a variety of formats like RDF/XML, NTriples and so on. That way you can import any existing knowledge base into KIM. The imported data will be immediately available for searching in the Structure or Patterns screens.
The tool is located in KIM tools folder <KIM_HOME>/bin/tools and requires a running instance of KIM.
|folder||should point to a folder (may include subfolders) with *.rdf; *.rdfs; *.owl, *.nt, *.n3 or *.ttl files|
|baseURI||the base URI with which you import the files. If none is provided, the default namespace will be <http :// www.ontotext.com/kim/2006/05/wkb# >. The base URI rarely needs to be defined. It is required only if there are URIs s in the input files without a namespace. As lack of namespaces is discouraged by the RDF standard, the output of most RDF editors and all of KIM tools will contain only fully qualified URIs.|
By default, the tool will import into KIM at localhost. To import data into a KIM Server, running on a remote machine, users need to create a configuration file named kim_connection.properties within the directory from which they are running the tool script. The file should contain at least two key-value pairs representing the KIM server host and port.
