Examples

require 'sparql/client'

sparql = SPARQL::Client.new("http://dbpedia.org/sparql")

Executing a boolean query and outputting the result

# ASK WHERE { ?s ?p ?o }
result = sparql.ask.whether([:s, :p, :o]).true?

puts result.inspect   #=> true or false

Executing a tuple query and iterating over the returned solutions

# SELECT * WHERE { ?s ?p ?o } OFFSET 100 LIMIT 10
query = sparql.select.where([:s, :p, :o]).offset(100).limit(10)

query.each_solution do |solution|
  puts solution.inspect
end

Executing a graph query and iterating over the returned statements

# CONSTRUCT { ?s ?p ?o } WHERE { ?s ?p ?o } LIMIT 10
query = sparql.construct([:s, :p, :o]).where([:s, :p, :o]).limit(10)

query.each_statement do |statement|
  puts statement.inspect
end

Executing an arbitrary textual SPARQL query string

result = sparql.query("ASK WHERE { ?s ?p ?o }")

puts result.inspect   #=> true or false
