public interface RepositoryConnection extends AutoCloseable
Main interface for updating data in and performing queries on an RDF4J Repository.

By default, a RepositoryConnection is in auto-commit mode, meaning that each operation corresponds to a single transaction on the underlying store. Multiple operations can be bundled in a single transaction by using begin() and commit/ rollback, which may improve performance considerably when dealing with many thousands of statements. Care should be taking to always properly close a RepositoryConnection after one is finished with it, to free up resources and avoid unnecessary locks.

RepositoryConnection is not guaranteed to be thread-safe. The recommended access pattern in a multithreaded application is to ensure that each thread creates/uses its own RepositoryConnections (which can be obtained from a shared Repository).

Several methods take a vararg argument that optionally specifies one or more contexts (named graphs) on which the method should operate. A vararg parameter is optional, it can be completely left out of the method call, in which case a method either operates on a provided statements context (if one of the method parameters is a statement or collection of statements), or operates on the repository as a whole, completely ignoring context. A vararg argument may also be 'null' (cast to Resource) meaning that the method operates on those statements which have no associated context only.

Examples:

 
 // Ex 1: this method retrieves all statements that appear in either context1 or
 // context2, or both.
 RepositoryConnection.getStatements(null, null, null, true, context1, context2);

 // Ex 2: this method retrieves all statements that appear in the repository
 // (regardless of context).
 RepositoryConnection.getStatements(null, null, null, true);

 // Ex 3: this method retrieves all statements that have no associated context in
 // the repository.
 // Observe that this is not equivalent to the previous method call.
 RepositoryConnection.getStatements(null, null, null, true, (Resource)null);

 // Ex 4: this method adds a statement to the store. If the statement object
 // itself has a context (i.e. statement.getContext() != null) the statement is added
 // to that context. Otherwise, it is added without any associated context.
 RepositoryConnection.add(statement);

 // Ex 5: this method adds a statement to context1 in the store. It completely
 // ignores any context the statement itself has.
 RepositoryConnection.add(statement, context1);

      Returns:
      A repository-specific ValueFactory.
    • isOpen

      boolean isOpen() throws RepositoryException
      Checks whether this connection is open. A connection is open from the moment it is created until it is closed.
      Throws:
      RepositoryException
      See Also:
    • close

      default void close() throws RepositoryException
      Closes the connection, freeing resources. If a transaction is active on the connection, all non-committed operations will be lost by actively calling rollback() on any active transactions.

      Implementation note: All implementations must override this method if they have any resources that they need to free.

      Specified by:
      close in interface AutoCloseable
      Throws:
      RepositoryException - If the connection could not be closed.
    • prepareQuery

      Parameters:
      query - The query string, in SPARQL syntax.
      Returns:
      A query ready to be evaluated on this repository.
      Throws:
      MalformedQueryException - If the supplied query is malformed.
      UnsupportedOperationException - If the prepareQuery method is not supported by this repository.

    • setAutoCommit

      @Deprecated void setAutoCommit(boolean autoCommit) throws RepositoryException
      Deprecated.
      As of release 2.7.0, use begin() instead.
      Enables or disables auto-commit mode for the connection. If a connection is in auto-commit mode, then all updates will be executed and committed as individual transactions. Otherwise, the updates are grouped into transactions that are terminated by a call to either commit() or rollback(). By default, new connections are in auto-commit mode.

      NOTE: If this connection is switched to auto-commit mode during a transaction, the transaction is committed.

      Throws:
      RepositoryException - In case the mode switch failed, for example because a currently active transaction failed to commit.
      See Also:
    • isAutoCommit

      @Deprecated boolean isAutoCommit() throws RepositoryException
      Deprecated.
      since 2.0. Use isActive() instead.
      Indicates if the connection is in auto-commit mode. The connection is in auto-commit mode when no transaction is currently active, that is, when:
      1. begin() has not been called or;
      2. commit() or rollback() have been called to finish the transaction.
      Throws:
      RepositoryException - If a repository access error occurs.
    • isActive

      Indicates if a transaction is currently active on the connection. A transaction is active if begin() has been called, and becomes inactive after commit() or rollback() has been called.
      Returns:
      true iff a transaction is active, false iff no transaction is active.
      Throws:
      UnknownTransactionStateException - if the transaction state can not be determined. This can happen for instance when communication with a repository fails or times out.
      RepositoryException
    • setIsolationLevel

      void setIsolationLevel(IsolationLevel level) throws IllegalStateException
      Sets the transaction isolation level for the next transaction(s) on this connection. If the level is set to a value that is not supported by the underlying repository, this method will still succeed but a subsequent call to begin() will result in an exception.
      Parameters:
      level - the transaction isolation level to set.
      Throws:
      IllegalStateException - if the method is called while a transaction is already active.
    • getIsolationLevel

      IsolationLevel getIsolationLevel()
      Retrieves the current transaction isolation level of the connection.
      Returns:
      the current transaction isolation level.
    • begin

      void begin() throws RepositoryException
      Begins a new transaction, requiring commit() or rollback() to be called to end the transaction. The transaction will use the currently set isolation level for this connection.
      Throws:
      RepositoryException - If the connection could not start the transaction. One possible reason this may happen is if a transaction is already active on the current connection.
      See Also:
    • begin

      void begin(IsolationLevel level) throws RepositoryException
      Begins a new transaction with the supplied IsolationLevel, requiring commit() or rollback() to be called to end the transaction.
      Parameters:
      level - The IsolationLevel at which this transaction will operate. If set to null the default isolation level of the underlying store will be used. If the specified isolation level is not supported by the underlying store, it will attempt to use a supported compatible level instead.
      Throws:
      RepositoryException - If the connection could not start the transaction. Possible reasons this may happen are:
      • a transaction is already active on the current connection.
      • the specified IsolationLevel is not supported by the store, and no compatible level could be found.
      See Also:
    • begin

      default void begin(TransactionSetting... settings)
      Begins a new transaction with the supplied TransactionSetting, requiring commit() or rollback() to be called to end the transaction.
      Parameters:
      settings - The TransactionSetting (zero or more) for this transaction. If an isolation level is provided in the settings this will be used for the transaction. If none is provided then the default will be used. Behaviour of this method is undefined if more than one isolation level is provided. Behaviour of this method is undefined if one or more settings is null.
      Throws:
      RepositoryException - If the connection could not start the transaction. Possible reasons this may happen are:
      • a transaction is already active on the current connection.
      • the specified IsolationLevel is not supported by the store, and no compatible level could be found.

      See Also:
    • prepare

      default void prepare() throws RepositoryException
      Checks for an error state in the active transaction that would force the transaction to be rolled back. This is an optional call; calling or not calling this method should have no effect on the outcome of commit() or rollback(). A call to this method must be followed by (in the same thread) with a call to prepare() , commit(), rollback(), or close() . This method may be called multiple times within the same transaction by the same thread. If this method returns normally, the caller can reasonably expect that a subsequent call to commit() will also return normally. If this method returns with an exception the caller should treat the exception as if it came from a call to commit().
      Throws:
      UnknownTransactionStateException - If the transaction state can not be determined (this can happen for instance when communication between client and server fails or times-out). It does not indicate a problem with the integrity of the store.
      RepositoryException - If there is an active transaction and it cannot be committed.
      IllegalStateException - If the connection has been closed or prepare was already called by another thread.

If possible, adding such data using an InputStream is to be preferred.
      Parameters:
      reader - A Reader from which RDF data can be read.
      dataFormat - The serialization format of the data.
      contexts - The contexts to add the data to. If one or more contexts are specified the data is added to these contexts, ignoring any context information in the data itself.
