Virtuoso is a high-performance object-relational sql database. as a database, it provides transactions, a smart sql compiler, powerful stored-procedure language with optional java and .net server-side hosting, hot backup, sql-99 support and more. it has all major data-access interfaces, such as odbc, jdbc, ado .net and ole/db.
openlink virtuoso supports sparql embedded into sql for querying rdf data stored in virtuoso's database. sparql benefits from low-level support in the engine itself, such as sparql-aware type-casting rules and a dedicated iri data type.
this is a dummy binary package to ensure the safe transition to the virtuoso-minimal package.
