Hi Jack,

if you want to query an SMW installation from remote and re-use the results in other applications, I recommend checking out our Triplestore Connector [1]. It delivers the results as XML format (compliant with the SPARQL recommendation).

If you want to query semantic data in your wiki, coming from another SMW installation you should take a further look at the Exhibit result printer [2].

Regards,
Philipp
