A RDF query language is a computer language able to retrieve and manipulate data stored in Resource Description Framework format.

SPARQL is emerging as the de-facto RDF query language, and is a W3C Recommendation[1]. Released as a Candidate Recommendation in April 2006, it returned to Working Draft status in October 2006, due to open issues. It returned to Candidate Recommendation status in June 2007[2]. On 12th November 2007 the status of SPARQL changed into Proposed Recommendation. [3] On 15th January 2008, SPARQL was standardized. [4]
