prestochango A library for working with CITE Collections


prestochango is a JVM library for working with an archive of CITE Collections.

prestochango is used by the hocuspocus library to manage a CITE Collection archive, including representing an archive of local files as RDF, and by the sparlqcc library, including instantiating the results of SPARQL queries as prestochango objects.

Version numbers follow semantic versioning. The 2.x series of releases is a ground-up rewrite with cleaner organization of fundamental objects in the library. Version 2.0 introduces the basic objects; version 2.1 is planned to add serialization as RDF.

A binary package of version 2.x is available from the maven repository at It was compiled for Java 8.
