GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] ANN: GoodRelations Service Update 2009-05-05 - Please refresh your caches!

Dear all:
We just released a service update of the GoodRelations ontology for
e-commerce.

The ontology is available at

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1

If you want to explicitly fetch the OWL file or the HTML documentation,
you may also use

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1.owl

or

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1.html

Please replace all local copies of GoodRelations by this new file.

The service update is designed to be fully backwards-compatible. Only a
few changes may require small modifications of current applications or
data sets. Those few potentially incompatible changes are as follows:

- gr:description is now deprecated; we suggest using rdfs:comment instead.
- gr:isListPrice is now deprecated and replaced by the more powerful
gr:priceType property.

The remaining changes are vocabulary extensions or improvements that
help increase the compatibility with Semantic Web applications. For
example, we
- changed cardinality recommendations for opening hours and business
functions, which simplifies the usage of GoodRelations in RDFa;
- added PayPal as a payment method, and
- added labels to all elements.

A complete change log is at

A big thank you for the many valuable suggestions for improvement!

Best

Martin
