    • getStatements

      CloseableIteration<? extends Statement,QueryEvaluationException> getStatements(Resource subj, IRI pred, Value obj, Resource... contexts) throws QueryEvaluationException
      Gets all statements that have a specific subject, predicate and/or object. All three parameters may be null to indicate wildcards. Optionally a (set of) context(s) may be specified in which case the result will be restricted to statements matching one or more of the specified contexts.
      subj - A Resource specifying the subject, or null for a wildcard.
      pred - A URI specifying the predicate, or null for a wildcard.
      obj - A Value specifying the object, or null for a wildcard.
      contexts - The context(s) to get the statements from. Note that this parameter is a vararg and as such is optional. If no contexts are supplied the method operates on the entire repository.
      An iterator over the relevant statements.
      QueryEvaluationException - If the triple source failed to get the statements.
    • getValueFactory

      ValueFactory getValueFactory()
      Gets a ValueFactory object that can be used to create URI-, blank node- and literal objects.
