BASIL is designed as middleware system that mediates between SPARQL endpoints and applications.
With BASIL you can build Web APIs on top of SPARQL endpoints.
BASIL stores SPARQL queries and builds APIs with standard and customizable formats.
The basil project is managed and built with Maven.
mvn clean install
Note: to also run tests, you need an active internet connection (as they use public SPARQL endpoints). If you want to skip tests, you can:
mvn install -DskipTests
You need to:
- Have a MySQL server.
- Prepare a database running the db.sql queries (at the root of the codebase).
- Prepare the configuration file (the connection parameters), see this file as an example.
- Prepare a log4j2 configuration file (if you want logging). See this file as an example.
When ready, execute:
$ java -jar -Dbasil.configurationFile=../basil.ini -Dlog4j.configurationFile=src/test/resources/log4j2.xml basil-server-0.3.0.jar -p 8080 #1: welcome to the world's helthiest food #2: basil is starting on port 8080 #3: done #4: enjoy
