NAME

Attean::QueryPlanner - Query planner

VERSION

This document describes Attean::QueryPlanner version 0.021

SYNOPSIS

  use v5.14;
  use Attean;
  my $planner = Attean::QueryPlanner->new();
  my $default_graphs = [ Attean::IRI->new('http://example.org/') ];
  my $plan = $planner->plan_for_algebra( $algebra, $model, $default_graphs );
  my $iter = $plan->evaluate($model);
  while (my $result = $iter->next()) {
    say $result->as_string;
  }

DESCRIPTION

The Attean::QueryPlanner class is a base class implementing common behavior for query planners. Subclasses will need to consume or compose the Attean::API::JoinPlanner role.

Trivial sub-classes may consume Attean::API::NaiveJoinPlanner, while more complex planners may choose to implement complex join planning (e.g. Attean::IDPQueryPlanner).

ATTRIBUTES

METHODS

new_temporary( $type )

Returns a new unique (in the context of the query planner) ID string that may be used for things like fresh (temporary) variables. The $type string is used in the generated name to aid in identifying different uses for the names.

plan_for_algebra( $algebra, $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs )

Returns the first plan returned from plans_for_algebra.

plans_for_algebra( $algebra, $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs )

Returns Attean::API::Plan objects representing alternate query plans for evaluating the query $algebra against the $model, using the supplied $active_graph.

simplify_path( $subject, $path, $object )

Return a simplified Attean::API::Algebra object corresponding to the given property path.

new_projection( $plan, $distinct, @variable_names )

Return a new Attean::Plan::Project plan over $plan, projecting the named variables. $disctinct should be true if the caller can guarantee that the resulting plan will produce distinct results, false otherwise.

This method takes care of computing plan metadata such as the resulting ordering.

bgp_join_plans( $bgp, $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs, \@interesting_order, \@plansA, \@plansB, ... )

Returns a list of alternative plans for the join of a set of triples. The arguments @plansA, @plansB, etc. represent alternative plans for each triple participating in the join.

group_join_plans( $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs, \@interesting_order, \@plansA, \@plansB, ... )

Returns a list of alternative plans for the join of a set of sub-plans. The arguments @plansA, @plansB, etc. represent alternative plans for each sub-plan participating in the join.

joins_for_plan_alternatives( $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs, $interesting, \@plan_A, \@plan_B, ... )

Returns a list of alternative plans that may all be used to produce results matching the join of plan_A, plan_B >, etc. Each plan array here (e.g. @plan_A) should contain equivalent plans.

access_plans( $model, $active_graphs, $pattern )

Returns a list of alternative Attean::API::Plan objects that may be used to produce results matching the Attean::API::TripleOrQuadPattern $pattern in the context of $active_graphs.

join_plans( $model, \@active_graphs, \@default_graphs, \@plan_left, \@plan_right, $type [, $expr] )

Returns a list of alternative plans for the join of one plan from @plan_left and one plan from @plan_right. The join $type must be one of 'inner', 'left', or 'minus', indicating the join algorithm to be used. If $type is 'left', then the optional $expr may be used to supply a filter expression that should be used by the SPARQL left-join algorithm.
