This tutorial shows two different methods of converting or materializing relational data into RDF graph data format: the D2RQ based method and the SQL based method. The D2RQ based method provides customizable mapping files that allow users to specify the generation of URIs, enabling the reuse of URIs across different columns, tables, schemas, or even databases. URI reuse here means using the same URI to represent the same resource. The SQL-based approach, as provided in this tutorial, does not handle escapes, character encoding, new lines, tabs, and other special characters.
