Gem wrapper for Apache Jena

This Gem provides convenience access to the Apache Jena RDF platform. Jena is a widely used Java platform for parsing, storing, manipulating, querying and publishing semantic web data and linked data. This gem provides a single dependency so that JRuby programs can access all of the capabilities of Jena, including TDB, conveniently from JRuby.

This gem provides the following benefits:

  • a single dependency which includes all of the .jar files for the latest release of Jena (currently 2.12.0) including TDB.

  • import of some of the key classes used by Jena-based programs into a Jena:: module, to make code more compact

  • some additional utility and convenience methods

Using the gem

Once installed, just add to your code:

require 'jena_jruby'

or add a suitable dependency to your bundle spec.

Access to Jena from Java

Create a model:

m = Jena::Core::ModelFactory.create_default_model

(note that JRuby automagically converts Java CamelCase names to Ruby lower_case names)

Add a statement:

jruby-1.6.5 :003 > m = Jena::Core::ModelFactory.create_default_model
 => #<Java::ComHpHplJenaRdfModelImpl::ModelCom:0x135a4815>
jruby-1.6.5 :004 > s = Jena::Core::ResourceFactory.create_resource "http://example.org/s"
 => #<Java::ComHpHplJenaRdfModelImpl::ResourceImpl:0x7b0f62cb>
jruby-1.6.5 :005 > o = Jena::Core::ResourceFactory.create_resource "http://example.org/o"
 => #<Java::ComHpHplJenaRdfModelImpl::ResourceImpl:0x4879c985>
jruby-1.6.5 :006 > p = Jena::Core::ResourceFactory.createProperty "http://example.org/p"
 => #<Java::ComHpHplJenaRdfModelImpl::PropertyImpl:0x3f7cd159>
jruby-1.6.5 :007 > m.add s,p,o
 => #<Java::ComHpHplJenaRdfModelImpl::ModelCom:0x135a4815>
jruby-1.6.5 :009 > m.toString
 => "<ModelCom   {http://example.org/s @http://example.org/p http://example.org/o} | >"

Building and installing the gem

Since jena-jruby now includes TDB, the easiest way to get the full set of jars necessary to support Jena is to use Maven to list the dependencies declared in the TDB pom.xml. For convenience, this is packaged in a bash script:

ian@ian-desktop $ bin/update_jars_maven
