In Web and Databases Workshop (WebDB) co-located with ACM SIGMOD, June 2009, Providence, Rhode Island.


Loosely structured heterogeneous information spaces are typically created by merging data from a variety of different applications and information sources. A common problem these information spaces need to address is that various data describe the same real-word entities (e.g., conferences, organizations). In this demo, we introduce necessity, an efficient and scalable entity store. necessity is able to handle a large number of entities and at the same time provide an efficient and highly accurate entity search functionality for heterogeneous and partially structured queries that follow the vision of dataspaces.
