Revelytix uses semantic web technologies to build products for data integration and emergent analytics in enterprises and federal systems. The company's flagship project uses Revelytix technologies to integrate many data sources in one of the largest federal domains and provide analytics for key decision-makers. Revelytix has three products built entirely in Clojure: Spyder (for dynamic SPARQL to SQL translation using R2RML mappings), Spinner (for SPARQL federation), and Rex (for RIF-based rule execution). These three products are all at their core about symbolic manipulation of queries, ontologies, or rules and we have found Clojure to be an excellent match for those problems. Clojure allows us to build high-level abstractions that work at the level of the problem. We also have gotten tremendous gains from being able to integrate with and reuse the vast wealth of Java libraries available on the JVM.

Over time, more and more of our Model layer will be developed in Clojure...

Wusoup is a web-based meeting application being built entirely in Clojure: front and back ends. Nginx acts as a reverse proxy, passing requests to the application running an embedded Jetty (Ring) server. Routing is handled by Compojure; HTML generation by Hiccup. The algorithmic stuff is mostly cached map reductions over user profiles and statistics collected from user behaviour. was one of the first production web sites built on Clojure. It was also one of the first open-source legal research databases, reported in the New York Times. AltLaw used Clojure to leverage large open-source Java libraries such as Hadoop, Lucene, and Solr. AltLaw has since shut down, but it helped to inspire other organizations, such as Google Scholar, to make more legal documents freely available and searchable.
