System Graphs and Server URIs

Mulgara maintains a system graph, which is akin to the system tables of a traditional Relational Database system.

The URI of the system graph is generated from the server URI. The server URI is meant to uniquely identify a server and, in the case of a standalone RMI server, describe the location used for querying the server from an RMI client. It is constructed in the following manner:


where <hostname> is the canonical network name for the host (the result from the 'hostname' command in Linux); [:rmiport] is the optional port number for the RMI registry, specified only if it's running on a different port from the default 1089; and <servername> is the name of the server (you can have multiple servers deployed on the same host; defaults to "server1"). All of these parameters may be changed in the configuration.


To dump the sysgraph of the default server try executing the following SPARQL query as the Query Text in the sample [[WebUI]] interface (don't forget the angle brackets):
select ?x ?y ?z from <rmi://localhost/server1#> where {?x ?y ?z}
