Fuseki is very easy to setup
- Download latest jena-fuseki distribution tarball from http://www.apache.org/dist/jena/binaries/
- Unpack the download archive
- Start fuseki-server
Fuseki should be running at http://localhost:3030/
If you want to change the port on which Fuseki runs, you can add the "–port" option to the run command (e.g. ./fuseki-server --port 3131 --update --mem /test).
To access the SPARQL query form, go to http://localhost:3030/control-panel.tpl and select your datasource (in this case /test).
- This allows you to perform SPARQL queries or updates, or upload an RDF file to replace the contents of the triplestore.
Sesame requires a little more setup to run with the tests, since by default it uses the same port as Fedora. To setup Sesame with Tomcat running on an alternate port:
- Download Tomcat from http://tomcat.apache.org/download-70.cgi and unpack the downloaded archive.
- Edit the Tomcat configuration file (
apache-tomcat-7.0.42/conf/server.xml) to use a different port (e.g., 8081 instead of 8080).
- Download Sesame from http://sourceforge.net/projects/sesame/files/Sesame%202/
- Unpack Sesame and move the Sesame WAR file into the Tomcat webapps directory, then start Tomcat.
Sesame should now be running at: http://localhost:8080/openrdf-sesame/system/overview.view
Before you can load data or perform queries, you must create a repository. You can do this using OpenRDF Workbench, a companion webapp to Sesame which provides the ability to manage repositories, perform SPARQL queries, etc. To deploy this webapp, copy the OpenRDF Workbench WAR file to the Tomcat webapps directory:
Then you can create a new repository at http://localhost:8081/openrdf-workbench/repositories/NONE/create, and query the test repository at http://localhost:8081/openrdf-workbench/repositories/test/query.
Alternatively, you can use the Sesame console application to create a repository from the command line:
- You may need to set the Sesame data directory in your Tomcat7 configuration (e.g. /etc/default/tomcat7)
