This site hosts the Apache Taverna (incubating) XML namespaces and ontologies, including:
Unfortunately some namespaces within this space may not be available as XSDs or OWL files.

Note that these URIs are not meant to be clickable (HTTP resolvable) to retrieve the original definition or data. The reason for this is that Apache does not (and will not) store centrally any workflow run information, data values or workflow definitions. It is however still useful that each workflow definition, each workflow run and each produced data value can be uniquely identified, therefore we build these URIs using UUIDs that are generated within Apache Taverna.
See Data bundle and SCUFL2 workflow bundle for more information.

2011/run namespaces currently give a

minimal Linked Data description of the resource based on information
embedded in the URI. See /scufl2-info/ for more information and source code.
