The sparql markup allows to execute a query on the ontology repository. The result of the query will be rendered into the wiki page (instead of the query).


After the SPARQL statement the following annotations can be inserted:

Annotation Description
@name Gives the SPARQL the specified name. The name can be used as reference in other markups (like InlineSparql)
@zebramode Renders the result table in zebra-style (gray/white).
@border A visual border is painted around the result table cells.
@rawOutput No abbreviations are used in the result table, but the full content (of literals for example) is printed.
@showQuery Besides the results of the query, also the query is shown in the view mode of the wiki.
@sorting The result table is sorted.
@timeout  The SPARQL gets more time to calculate the results; parameter in milliseconds.


The sparql markup allows full support of the SPARQL 1.1. query language specification, which can be found here:

The following simple example shows a query selecting all instances of the class Person:

  ?x rdf:type lns:Person .
@name: exampleQuery
@zebramode: true
@border: true 

In the view mode the results of the query are shown.

Hierarchy Table Example#

Demo - Simpsons

SELECT (SAMPLE(?sub) as ?sub) (SAMPLE(?par) as ?par) (SAMPLE(?name) as ?name) ?concept
    # bind si:abraham as root node
    BIND (si:abraham as ?sub) .  
    # collect all parent child relations (will be conntected automagically to si:abraham)
    ?sub si:parent ?par ;
  # display name and concept as table columns
  ?sub  rdfs:label ?name .
  BIND (?sub as ?concept) .
} GROUP BY ?concept
