Abstract Text This proposal explores the promotion of existing relational databases to Semantic Web Endpoints. It presents the benefits of ontology-based read and write access to existing relational data as well as the need for specialized, scalable reasoning over that data. We introduce our approach for translating SPARQL/Update operations to SQL, describe how scalable reasoning can be realized by using the power of the database system, and outline two case studies for evaluating our approach.
