    Batch Loading of Semantic Data

      I am trying to load an N3 file into an Oracle 11g instance. Basically it's the same data that is in the family example (here: http://tinyurl.com/yl9zqtl) that I put into an N3 file. I'm executing a command like below (according to: http://tinyurl.com/yjp4olv)

      java -Ddb.user=<dbuser> -Ddb.password=<pass> -Ddb.host= -Ddb.port=11521 -Ddb.sid=oracle -cp sdordf.jar:ojdbc6.jar oracle.spatial.rdf.client.BatchLoader family.n3 family_rdf_data rdf_tablespace fam

      The "family.n3" file looks like:

      @prefix fam: <http://www.example.org/family.rdf#> .
      @prefix rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .

      fam:John rdf:type fam:Male;
           fam:fatherOf fam:Suzie;
           fam:fatherOf fam:Matt.

      fam:Janice fam:motherOf fam:Suzie;
           fam:motherOf fam:Matt.

      fam:Sammy fam:fatherOf fam:Cathy;
           fam:fatherOf fam:Jack.


      I then get an error message from the BatchLoader program:

      Batch loading started...
      Subject: @prefix
      Property: rdf:
      Object: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#>

      Loading up to rows = 2
      java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
           at java.lang.String.substring(String.java:1937)
           at oracle.spatial.rdf.client.NTripleTokenizer.parse(NTripleTokenizer.java:71)
           at oracle.spatial.rdf.client.NTripleConverter.loadNTriple(NTripleConverter.java:534)
           at oracle.spatial.rdf.client.BatchLoader.main(BatchLoader.java:302)

      It errors on the first line if I remove the second line above. Am I doing something wrong? I pasted the N3 file into an N3 validator (found here: http://www.rdfabout.com/demo/validator/) and it validates, so the N3 file at least looks like it is working fine.

          Hi Ryan,

          The batch loader in sdordf.jar does not accept N3 format. You can try one of the following
          - using Jena Adaptor (which accepts N3, NTRIPLE, RDF/XML), or
          - convert N3 to NTriple format and re-try the batch loading.

            you can use the jena library to load an oracle model directly from an N3 file:

            GraphOracleSem oracleGraph = new GraphOracleSem(oracle, "myModel", true);
            oracleModel = new ModelOracleSem(oracleGraph);
            InputStream is = FileManager.get().open("xxx.n3");
            // read file contents into oracleModel
            oracleModel.read(is, "", "N3");
            System.out.printf("Size of Oracle model is %d\n", oracleModel.size());

              Switching to the Jena API solved the problem. Thanks for the help!
