Sesame; organization and status

[storage and querying middleware for the Semantic Web -- concluded on 2006/03]

Originally, Sesame was developed by Aidministrator Nederland BV as a research prototype and one of the key deliverables in the European IST project On-To-Knowledge (EU-IST-1999-10132).

Now, Sesame is being further developed by Aduna (the new name for Aidministrator) and the NLnet Foundation as an Open Source tool under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). Arjohn Kampman and Jeen Broekstra, both software developers at Aduna, are managing the project. Ongoing contributions are made by the Bulgarian company OntoText, which developed the Ontology Management Module of Sesame as part of the On-To-Knowledge project.
