This paper formalizes several independent approaches on how to develop Semantic Web applications using object-oriented programming languages and Object-Triple Mapping. Using such mapping, Semantic Web applications have been developed up to three times faster compared to traditional Semantic Web software engineering. Results show that at the same time, developer satisfaction has been significantly higher if they used object triple mapping. We present a formal notation of object triple mapping and results of an experimental evaluation clearly showing the benefits of such mapping. The work presented here may one day help to make Semantic Web technologies part of the majority of future applications.
