Linked Open Data (LOD) has been proliferated over various domains, however, there are still lots of open data in various format other than RDF, a standard data description framework in LOD. These open data can also be connected to entities in LOD when they are associated with URIs. Document-centric XML data are such open data that are connected with entities in LOD as supplemental documents for these entities, and to convert these XML data into RDF requires various techniques such as

To utilize document-centric XML data linked from entities in LOD, in this paper, a SPARQL-based seamless access method on RDF and XML data is proposed. In particular, an extension to SPARQL, XQueryFILTER, which enables XQuery as a filter in SPARQL is proposed. For efficient query processing of the combination of SPARQL and XQuery, a database theory-based query optimization is proposed. Real-world scenario-based experiments in this paper showcase that effectiveness of XQueryFILTER and efficiency of the optimization.
