Rexster is a graph server that exposes any Blueprints graph through HTTP/REST and a binary protocol called RexPro. Extensions support standard traversal goals such as search, score, rank, and, in concert, recommendation. Rexster makes extensive use of Blueprints, Pipes, and Gremlin. In this way its possible to run Rexster over various graph systems including:
- TinkerGraph in-memory graph
- Neo4j graph database
- OrientDB graph database
- Sparksee graph database
- Titan graph database
- Sesame 2.0 compliant RDF stores
- Many third-party Blueprints implementations
Rexster provides a browser-based user interface known as The Dog House. This interface allows for viewing vertices, edges, and their related properties. A web-based console for executing Gremlin scripts is provided along with a Rexster Console which allows remote evaluation of scripts within the Rexster Server context.
