Overview of repositories

Data in GraphDB is organized within repositories. Each repository is an independent RDF database that can be active separately from other repositories. Operations involving data updates or queries are always directed to a single repository.

Repositories are typically native GraphDB repositories. However, there are other repository types that are used with Virtualization (which allows GraphDB to work with relational databases) and FedX Federation.

Note

The console utility lets you perform many operations on repositories from your operating system command line.
