There are tools in the form of data access drivers that provide access 
to data associated with all the above. These drivers enable access via 
SQL i.e., the middleware maps the underlying data to the RDBMS model. 
Once in place, you can build on from there. That's all been in place 
before there was a "Semantic Web" meme.    (01)

Now, when the data is loosely coupled via a middleware layer, you can 
then bring in the tools from the Semantic Web stack that remap the data 
by way of views endowed with requisite semantics defined by an ontology 
etc..    (02)
