2. AllegroGraph Free Lisp Edition

For customers interested in Semantic Web technologies, Franz has
developed a new persistent, scalable triple-store database
product. This product is available separately from the Allegro CL
release process and pricing. In conjunction with the ACL 8.1 release,
Franz has introduced the Free Lisp Edition of AllegroGraph. It has a
maximum limitation of 50,000,000 RDF triples on appropriately
configured hardware. The AllegroGraph Free Lisp Edition is available
to all ACL customers as well as ACL Express Edition users.

Additionally, there are several recorded web presentations on various
related topics that you can view here:

3. AllegroGraph http/REST Protocol Tutorial

It is now possible for web developers and programmers alike to
interact with AllegroGraph 2.1 completely using a RESTful HTTP
protocol (using GET, PUT, POST) to add and delete triples, to query
for individual triples and to do SPARQL and Prolog selects. We didn't
invent this interface ourselves. We implemented the Sesame 2.0
HTTP-interface with some extensions (see the HTTP protocol
reference). The HTTP-interface can be used from any language that
knows how to make HTTP client requests. This means that you can use
AllegroGraph (functioning as a server) from Ruby, Python and many
other languages.
