Streaming Topic Maps API
Abstract: This paper introduces a new, event-based API to create topic maps. It is independent of particular Topic Maps processors and enables developers to convert any resource into a Topic Maps representation with minimal e?ort. The API is somewhat aligned to the "push-model" of the familiar Simple API for XML (SAX) and is therefore easy to learn. It has been implemented for different programming languages and supplements APIs like the object-orientated Topic Maps API (TMAPI).
