Class MetaProperty<T>

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    ConfigProperty, InfoProperty

    public abstract class MetaProperty<T>
    extends java.lang.Object

    Representation of a Stardog metadata property. Meta properties provide information about Stardog system and databases in Stardog. Some meta properties (e.g. IndexOptions.INDEX_TYPE) are used to configure various aspects of Stardog behavior for loading, indexing, querying, and so on. Other properties only provide information and cannot be modified by users (e.g. IndexOptions.DIFF_INDEX_SIZE). See the implementations of MetaPropertyProvider interface for a complete list of met properties supported by Stardog.

    A meta property is uniquely identified by its name. Properties may have a predefined default value that will be used if there is no user-specified value. The values for meta properties are stored in Metadata.

    There are two distinct kinds of meta properties: configuration property and information property. The values for either property kind can be retrieved using com.complexible.stardog.api.admin.AdminConnection#get(String, MetaProperty) function but only if the property is readable (some meta properties are for system use only and their value cannot be read by users). The values for config properties can be specified as input to the database builder at database creation time using its com.complexible.stardog.api.admin.DatabaseBuilder#set(ConfigProperty, Object) function if the property is creatable. The values for config properties can be modified later through the AdminConnection interface with the com.complexible.stardog.api.admin.AdminConnection#set(String, ConfigProperty, Object) function if the property is writable.

        public boolean isSecure()
        Returns true if retrieving the value of this property requires database metadata read permission. Some database metadata properties, e.g. namespaces, can be read without metadata permissions. Databases read/write permissions will still be required to read the value of this property if this function returns false. Database metadata write permission is required to update any property regardless of this value.
