The beauty of Latex: my AllegroGraph book becomes two books, one for JVM languages and one for Lisp
I am splitting the book into two volumes, and using Latex makes this really easy to share small amounts of common material so both books stand on their own. Latex also makes it easy to combine both books into one all-inclusive book, eliminating the duplicated parts. The two volumes are:
- Volume I: will cover the use of both AllegroGraph and Sesame using JVM languages: Java, Scala, JRuby, and Clojure. I am working on a common wrapper written in Java that supplies my own (rather simple) API to both AllegroGraph and Sesame. My wrapper implements Sesame support for geolocation and free text indexing and search so the wrapper is adequate to run all of the book examples using either AllegroGraph or Sesame "back ends."
- Volume II: will cover only AllegroGraph using both the embedded and client Lisp APIs.
