NAME

       RDF::Trine::Store - RDF triplestore base class

VERSION

       This document describes RDF::Trine::Store version 1.019

DESCRIPTION

       RDF::Trine::Store provides a base class and common API for implementations of
       triple/quadstores for use with the RDF::Trine framework. In general, it should be used
       only be people implementing new stores. For interacting with stores (e.g. to read, insert,
       and delete triples) the RDF::Trine::Model interface should be used (using the model as an
       intermediary between the client/user and the underlying store).

       To be used by the RDF::Trine framework, store implementations must implement a set of
       required functionality:

       ·   "new"

       ·   "get_statements"

       ·   "get_contexts"

       ·   "add_statement"

       ·   "remove_statement"

       ·   "count_statements"

       ·   "supports"

       Implementations may also provide the following methods if a native implementation would be
       more efficient than the default provided by RDF::Trine::Store:

       ·   "get_pattern"

       ·   "get_sparql"

       ·   "remove_statements"

       ·   "size"

       ·   "nuke"

       ·   "_begin_bulk_ops"

       ·   "_end_bulk_ops"

METHODS

       "new ( $data )"
           Returns a new RDF::Trine::Store object based on the supplied data value.  This
           constructor delegates to one of the following methods depending on the value of $data:

           * "new_with_string" if $data is not a reference

           * "new_with_config" if $data is a HASH reference

           * "new_with_object" if $data is a blessed object

       "new_with_string ( $config )"
           Returns a new RDF::Trine::Store object based on the supplied configuration string. The
           format of the string specifies the Store subclass to be instantiated as well as any
           required constructor arguments. These are separated by a semicolon. An example
           configuration string for the DBI store would be:

            DBI;mymodel;DBI:mysql:database=rdf;user;password

           The format of the constructor arguments (everything after the first ';') is specific
           to the Store subclass.

       "new_with_config ( \%config )"
           Returns a new RDF::Trine::Store object based on the supplied configuration hashref.
           This requires the the Store subclass to be supplied with a "storetype" key, while
           other keys are required by the Store subclasses, please refer to each subclass for
           specific documentation.

           An example invocation for the DBI store may be:

             my $store = RDF::Trine::Store->new_with_config({
                           storetype => 'DBI',
                           name      => 'mymodel',
                           dsn       => 'DBI:mysql:database=rdf',
                           username  => 'dahut',
                           password  => 'Str0ngPa55w0RD'
                         });

       "new_with_object ( $object )"
           Returns a new RDF::Trine::Store object based on the supplied opaque $object.  If the
           $object is recognized by an available backend as being sufficient to construct a store
           object, the store object will be returned. Otherwise undef will be returned.

       "nuke"
           Permanently removes the store and its data.

       "class_by_name ( $name )"
           Returns the class of the storage implementation with the given name.  For example,
           'Memory' would return 'RDF::Trine::Store::Memory'.

       "temporary_store"
           Returns a new temporary triplestore (using appropriate default values).

       "get_statements ($subject, $predicate, $object [, $context] )"
           Returns a stream object of all statements matching the specified subject, predicate
           and objects. Any of the arguments may be undef to match any value.

       "get_contexts"
           Returns an RDF::Trine::Iterator over the RDF::Trine::Node objects comprising the set
           of contexts of the stored quads.

       "add_statement ( $statement [, $context] )"
           Adds the specified $statement to the underlying model.

       "remove_statement ( $statement [, $context])"
           Removes the specified $statement from the underlying model.

       "remove_statements ( $subject, $predicate, $object [, $context])"
           Removes the specified $statement from the underlying model.

       "count_statements ($subject, $predicate, $object)"
           Returns a count of all the statements matching the specified subject, predicate and
           objects. Any of the arguments may be undef to match any value.

       "size"
           Returns the number of statements in the store.

       "etag"
           If the store has the capability and knowledge to support caching, returns a persistent
           token that will remain consistent as long as the store's data doesn't change. This
           token is acceptable for use as an HTTP ETag.

       "supports ( [ $feature ] )"
           If $feature is specified, returns true if the feature is supported by the store, false
           otherwise. If $feature is not specified, returns a list of supported features.
