Interface Bag

All Superinterfaces:
Container, FrontsNode, RDFNode, Resource
All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface Bag extends Container
An RDF Bag container.

This interface defines methods for accessing RDF Bag resources. These methods operate on the RDF statements contained in a model. The Bag implementation may cache state from the underlying model, so objects should not be added to or removed to/from the Bag by directly manipulating its properties, whilst the Bag is being accessed through this interface.

When a member is deleted from a Bag using this interface, or an iterator returned through this interface, all the other members with higher ordinals are renumbered using an implementation dependent algorithm.

    • remove

      Container remove(Statement s)
      Remove a value from the container.

      The predicate of the statement s identifies the ordinal of the value to be removed. Once removed, the values in the container with a higher ordinal value are renumbered. The renumbering algorithm is implementation dependent.

      Specified by:
      remove in interface Container
      s - The statement to be removed from the model.
