Rexster is a multi-faceted graph server that exposes any Blueprints graph through several mechanisms with a general focus on REST. 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
- DEX graph database
- Sesame 2.0 compliant RDF stores
Rexster provides a browser-based user interface known as The Dog House. This interface allows for viewing vertices, edges, and their related properties. It also includes a console for executing Gremlin scripts. Rexster also includes Rexster Console which allows remote evaluation of scripts within the Rexster Server context.
