Fuseki can be run in a number of ways:
See “Fuseki Configuration” for information on how to provide datasets and configure services.
This is running Fuseki from the command line.
fuseki-server [--mem | --loc=DIR] [[--update] /NAME] fuseki-server --config=CONFIG
/NAME is the dataset publishing name at this server in URI space.
--tdb2 puts the command line handling into “TDB2 mode”.
A dataset created with
--loc is a TDB2 dataset.
fuseki-server --help for details of more arguments.
FUSEKI_BASE, the runtime area for the server instance, defaults to the
run/ directory of the current directory.
Fuseki v2 supports the same style of configuration file as Fuseki v1 but it
is better to separate the data service definitions from the server
configuration with one definition per file in
see “Fuseki Configuration".
If you get the error message
Can't find jarfile to run then you either
need to put a copy of
fuseki-server.jar in the current directory or set
the environment variable
FUSEKI_HOME to point to an unpacked Fuseki
Unlike Fuseki v1, starting with no dataset and no configuration is possible. Datasets can be added from the admin UI to a running server.
Fuseki can run as an operating system service, started when the server
machine boots. The script
fuseki is a Linux
init.d with the common
secondary arguments of
Process arguments are read from
FUSEKI_HOME should be the directory
where the distribution was unpacked.
Fuseki can run from a WAR file. Fuseki requires at least support for the Servlet 3.0 API (e.g. Apache Tomcat 7 or Jetty 8) as well as Java8.
FUSEKI_HOME is not applicable.
FUSEKI_BASE defaults to
/etc/fuseki which must be a writeable
directory. It is initialised the first time Fuseki runs, including a
Apache Shiro security file but this is only
intended as a starting point. It restricts use of the admin UI to the
Fuseki can be run from inside an Java application to provide SPARQL services to application data. The application can continue to access and update the datasets served by the server.
Dataset ds = ... FusekiServer server = FusekiServer.create() .add("/dataset", ds) .build() ; server.start() ;
org.apache.jena:jena-fuseki-server is a packaging of
the Fuseki “main” server server that runs from
the command line. Unlike the full Fuseki server, it is only configured
from the command line and has no persistent work area on-disk.
It has full SPARQL and all storage options.
