Path query languages have been previously shown to com-
plement RDF rule languages in a natural way and have been used as
a means to implement the RDFS derivation rules. RPL is a novel path
query language specifically designed to be incorporated with RDF rules
and comes in three
avors: Node-, edge- and path-
allow to express conditional regular expressions over the nodes, edges, or
nodes and edges appearing on paths within RDF graphs. Providing reg-
ular string expressions and negation, RPL is more expressive than other
RDF path languages that have been proposed. We give a compositional
semantics for RPL and show that it can be evaluated efficiently, while
several possible extensions of it cannot.
