/ns/ hosts the Apache Taverna (incubating)
XML namespaces and ontologies, including:
- http://ns.taverna.org.uk/2010/scufl2 (and scufl2.xsd scufl2.ttl and scufl2.rdf)
- http://ns.taverna.org.uk/2012/tavernaprov/ (also tavernaprov.ttl and tavernaprov.rdf)
Unfortunately some namespaces within this space may not currently be available as XSDs or OWL files.
ns.taverna.org.uk and apache.org
The namespaces have traditionally been at
http://ns.taverna.org.uk/ - since October 2014 Taverna has joined
the Apache Software Foundation
as an incubator project. The existing Taverna websites
originally hosted by myGrid at
University of Manchester is in the process of moving to be
now redirects to http://taverna.incubator.apache.org/ns/*,
hosted as part of the
Apache Taverna website.

As the new URIs includes the temporary
.incubator, new namespaces should still be
http://ns.taverna.org.uk/2015/ (or later years).
To edit this content (e.g. to add a new namespace), use SVN and
and then publish with Apache CMS.
Apache Taverna generates identifiers starting with:
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](/documentation/scufl2/taverna_bundle).
URIs within the
2011/run namespaces currently give a
Other redirects to a scufl2info guessing service that constructs a
minimal Linked Data description of the resource based on information
embedded in the URI. See scufl2-info
for more information and source code.
For example. the URI below identifies the workflow run with a UUID
This URI identifies the "string1" input port within the processor "Concatenate_two_strings" in the "Hello_Anyone" within the workflow bundle with the UUID
