Old Release

This documentation relates to an old version of VIVO, version 1.13.x.
Looking for another version? See all documentation.

jena3tools is a command line Java utility which uses the Jena libraries to import and export data to and from a Jena 3 VIVO system (version 1.10 and beyond).  Jena3tools imports and exports both the data store and the configuration store.  The exports are stored in vivo-home/dumps.

jena3tools is used during an upgrade process from VIVO versions running Jena 2 (version 1.9.3 and earlier).  See Upgrading VIVO

jena3tools can also be used to export your VIVO configuration and content for sharing, and/ or use in other tools. See Exporting Data from VIVO
