Overview

An RDF statement.

Examples:

Creating an RDF statement

s = RDF::URI.new("http://rubygems.org/gems/rdf")
p = RDF::Vocab::DC.creator
o = RDF::URI.new("http://ar.to/#self")
RDF::Statement(s, p, o)

Creating an RDF statement with a graph_name

uri = RDF::URI("http://example/")
RDF::Statement(s, p, o, graph_name: uri)

Creating an RDF statement from a Hash

RDF::Statement({
  subject:   RDF::URI.new("http://rubygems.org/gems/rdf"),
  predicate: RDF::Vocab::DC.creator,
  object:    RDF::URI.new("http://ar.to/#self"),
})

Creating an RDF statement with interned nodes

RDF::Statement(:s, p, :o)

Creating an RDF statement with a string

RDF::Statement(s, p, "o")

Constructor Details

#initialize(options = {}) ⇒ RDF::Statement #initialize(subject, predicate, object, options = {}) ⇒ RDF::Statement

Returns a new instance of Statement

Overloads:

  • #initialize(options = {}) ⇒ RDF::Statement

    Parameters:

    • options (Hash{Symbol => Object}) (defaults to: {})

    Options Hash (options):

    • :subject (RDF::Term) — default: nil

      A symbol is converted to an interned Node.

    • :predicate (RDF::URI) — default: nil
    • :object (RDF::Resource) — default: nil

      if not a Resource, it is coerced to Literal or Node depending on if it is a symbol or something other than a Term.

    • :graph_name (RDF::Term) — default: nil

      Note, in RDF 1.1, a graph name MUST be an Resource.

  • #initialize(subject, predicate, object, options = {}) ⇒ RDF::Statement

    Parameters:

    Options Hash (options):

    • :graph_name (RDF::Term) — default: nil

      Note, in RDF 1.1, a graph name MUST be an Resource.
