Subject: Re: Create NodeIterator from SPARQL Result

A NodeIterator for what? A ResultSet wraps an iterator of QuerySolution
objects, each of which contains the mapping of a variable name to the
corresponding RDF resource (if bound). Thus, each QuerySolution can wrap a
set of nodes...

Clearly, you could generate a wrapping iterator by yourself. Just implement
the NodeIterator interface and the corresponding methods. The constructor
indeed should take the ResultSet and a variable name as arguments (if you
want all nodes for each QuerySolution, it'S also
possible) - the rest is straightforward Java coding.

Untested stub:

class ResultSetWrappingNodeIterator implements NodeIterator {

final ResultSet rs;

final String varName;

ResultSetWrappingNodeIterator(ResultSet rs, String varName) {

    this.rs = rs;

    this.varName = varName;


public RDFNode next() {

    return rs.next().get(varName).asNode();

I have a question. I am developing small application with Jena and ARQ.

Is it possible to create NodeIterator instance from SPARQL result?

In Jena and ARQ APIs, SPARQL query(qexec.execSelect() method) returns
an instance of ResultSet interface.

But I want to create a method that returns NodeIterator instance after
executing SPARQL query like below.

public NodeIterator getObjects(Resource s, Property p) {

            String queryString = "SELECT ?o WHERE { <" + s.getURI() +
"> <" +
p.getURI() + "> ?o . }";

            Query query = QueryFactory.create(queryString);

            QueryExecution qexec =
QueryExecutionFactory.sparqlService("SPARQL_ENDPOINT_ADDRESS", query);

            ResultSet results = qexec.execSelect();

            NodeIterator ni = ??? // to create NodeIterator instance
from ResultSet

            return ni;


Is it possible?

Thank you for your help.
