Configuration

SPARQL Anything behaves as a standard SPARQL query engine. For example, the SPARQL Anything server will act as a virtual endpoint that can be queried exactly as a remote SPARQL endpoint. In addition, SPARQL Anything provides a rich Command Line Interface (CLI). For information for how to run SPARQL Anything, please see the quickstart and usage sections of the documentation.

Passing triplification options via SERVICE IRI

In order to instruct the query processor to delegate the execution to SPARQL Anything, you can use the following IRI-schema within SERVICE clauses.

x-sparql-anything ':' ([option] ('=' [value])? ','?)+

A minimal URI that uses only the resource locator is also possible.

x-sparql-anything ':' URL

In this case SPARQL Anything guesses the data source type from the file extension.

Passing triplification options via Basic Graph Pattern

Alternatively, options can be provided as basic graph pattern inside the SERVICE clause as follows

PREFIX xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/>
PREFIX rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>
PREFIX fx: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>

SELECT ?seriesName
WHERE {

    SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:> {
        fx:properties fx:location "https://sparql-anything.cc/example1.json" .
        ?tvSeries xyz:name ?seriesName .
        ?tvSeries xyz:stars ?star .
        ?star fx:anySlot "Courteney Cox" .
    }

}

Note that

  1. The SERVICE IRI scheme must be x-sparql-anything:.
  2. Each triplificationĀ option to pass to the engine corresponds to a triple of the Basic Graph Pattern inside the SERVICE clause.
  3. Such triples must have fx:properties as subject, fx:[OPTION-NAME] as predicate, and a literal or a variable as object.

You can also mix the two modalities as follows.

PREFIX xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/>
PREFIX rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>
PREFIX fx: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>

SELECT ?seriesName
WHERE {

    SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:blank-nodes=false> {
        fx:properties fx:location "https://sparql-anything.cc/example1.json" .
        ?tvSeries xyz:name ?seriesName .
        ?tvSeries xyz:stars ?star .
        ?star fx:anySlot "Courteney Cox" .
    }

}

ondisk It tells SPARQL Anything to use an on disk graph (instead of the default in memory graph). The string should be a path to a directory where the on disk graph will be stored. Using an on disk graph is almost always slower (than using the default in memory graph) but with it you can triplify large files without running out of memory. A path to a directory No value
ondisk.reuse When using an on disk graph, it tells sparql.anything to reuse the previous on disk graph. true/false true

        ?s        ?p           ?o
      }
  }

Result

@prefix fx:  <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/> .
@prefix xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/> .

[ a       fx:root ;
  <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#_1>
          "UTF-16 test file"
] .

ondisk

It tells SPARQL Anything to use an on disk graph (instead of the default in memory graph). The string should be a path to a directory where the on disk graph will be stored. Using an on disk graph is almost always slower (than using the default in memory graph) but with it you can triplify large files without running out of memory.

Valid Values

A path to a directory.

Default Value

No value

Examples

UC1: Use on disk graph for triplifying the JSON Object {"name":"Vincent", "surname": "Vega" } (provided as a content string).
PREFIX  fx:   <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>

CONSTRUCT 
  { 
    ?s ?p ?o .
  }
WHERE
  { SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:>
      { fx:properties
                  fx:content     "{\"name\":\"Vincent\", \"surname\": \"Vega\" }" ;
                  fx:ondisk      "/tmp" ;
                  fx:media-type  "application/json" .
        ?s        ?p             ?o
      }
  }

Result

@prefix fx:  <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/> .
@prefix xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/> .

[ a            fx:root ;
  xyz:name     "Vincent" ;
  xyz:surname  "Vega"
] .

ondisk.reuse

When using an on disk graph, it tells SPARQL Anything to reuse the previous on disk graph.

Valid Values

true/false

Default Value

true

Examples

UC1:
PREFIX  fx:   <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>

CONSTRUCT 
  { 
    ?s ?p ?o .
  }
WHERE
  { SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:>
      { fx:properties
                  fx:content       "{\"name\":\"Vincent\", \"surname\": \"Vega\" }" ;
                  fx:ondisk        "/tmp/" ;
                  fx:ondisk.reuse  true ;
                  fx:media-type    "application/json" .
        ?s        ?p               ?o
      }
  }

Result

@prefix fx:  <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/> .
@prefix xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/> .

[ a            fx:root ;
  xyz:name     "Vincent" ;
  xyz:surname  "Vega"
] .

Note: the result doesn't change, but no new ondisk graph is created.

strategy

The execution strategy. 0 = in memory, all triples; 1 = in memory, only triples matching any of the triple patterns in the where clause.

Valid Values

0, 1

Default Value

1

Examples

UC1: Retrieving from relative/path/to/example1.json the names of the TV Series starring Courtney Cox.
PREFIX xyz: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/>
PREFIX rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>
PREFIX fx: <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>
SELECT ?seriesName
WHERE {
    SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:relative/path/to/example1.json,strategy=0> {
        ?tvSeries xyz:name ?seriesName .
        ?tvSeries xyz:stars ?star .
        ?star fx:anySlot "Courteney Cox" .
    }
}

Result

seriesName
"Cougar Town"
"Friends"

Note: the strategy option does not affect the result.

slice

The resource is sliced and the SPARQL query executed on each one of the parts. Supported by: CSV (row by row); JSON (when array slice by item, when json object requires json.path); XML (requires xml.path)

Valid Values

true/false

Default Value

false

Examples

UC1: Retrieving name and surname of the actors in https://sparql-anything.cc/examples/simpleArray.json along with the movie they performed in.
PREFIX  xyz:  <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/>
PREFIX  fx:   <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>
PREFIX  rdf:  <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>

SELECT  ?name ?surname ?movie
WHERE
  { SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:location=https://sparql-anything.cc/examples/simpleArray.json,slice=true>
      { ?p  xyz:name     ?name ;
            xyz:surname  ?surname ;
            xyz:movie    ?movie
      }
  }

Result

------------------------------------------
| name        | surname | movie          |
==========================================
| "Vincent"   | "Vega"  | "Pulp fiction" |
| "Winnfield" | "Vega"  | "Pulp fiction" |
| "Beatrix"   | "Kiddo" | "Kill Bill"    |
------------------------------------------
UC2: Retrieving pairs of actors that performed in the same movie
PREFIX  xyz:  <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/data/>
PREFIX  fx:   <http://sparql.xyz/facade-x/ns/>
PREFIX  rdf:  <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>

SELECT  *
WHERE
  { SERVICE <x-sparql-anything:location=https://sparql-anything.cc/examples/simpleArray.json,slice=true>
      { ?p1  xyz:name     ?name1 ;
             xyz:surname  ?surname1 ;
             xyz:movie    ?movie .
        ?p2  xyz:name     ?name2 ;
             xyz:surname  ?surname2 ;
             xyz:movie    ?movie
        FILTER ( ?p1 != ?p2 )
      }
  }

Note: the query contains a join over two slices, therefore, running the query with slicing option enabled affects the result.

Result

---------------------------------------------------------
| p1 | name1 | surname1 | movie | p2 | name2 | surname2 |
=========================================================
---------------------------------------------------------

HTTP options

SPARQL Anything relies on Apache Commons HTTP for HTTP connections.

Option name Description Valid Values Default Value

http.client.useSystemProperties Use Java System Properties to configure the HTTP Client. true/false true
http.header.* To add headers to the HTTP request. E.g. http.header.accept=application/json
http.query.* To add parameters to the query string. E.g. http.query.var=value or http.query.var.1=value to add more variable of the same name
http.form.* To add parameters to the POST content. E.g. http.form.var=value or http.form.var.1=value to add more variable of the same name
http.method HTTP Method GET,POST,... GET
http.payload Sets the payload of the request
http.protocol Protocol 0.9,1.0,1.1 1.1
