Upgrade notes

RDF4J 3.7.0 is binary compatible with older RDF4J releases. Nevertheless, the following should be kept in mind when upgrading:

  • The protected method SPARQLRepository#createHTTPClient has been renamed to #createSPARQLProtocolSession. Developers who override its behavior will need to adjust their code.


This release was made possible by contributions from Bart Hanssens, Håvard M. Ottestad, Jeen Broekstra, Damyan Ognyanov, Tomas Kovachev, and Desislava Hristova.
