Amazon Neptune announces support for SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol (GSP) for graphs using W3C’s Resource Description Framework (RDF). Using GSP on SPARQL 1.1 endpoints, customers now have an efficient method to interact with complete named graphs within a graph store. This can streamline building graph applications using Amazon Neptune and tools that support the W3C Recommendation GSP such as Apache Jena.

GSP provides customers with convenient endpoints for manipulating an entire named graph in one HTTP request, instead of having to write multiple complex SPARQL 1.1 queries to achieve the same result. SPARQL 1.1 provides a query-based approach to fetching, inserting, and deleting RDF triples, GSP supports these actions on entire named graphs in the graph store. The addition of GSP in Neptune introduces a new endpoint URL: https://your-neptune-endpoint:port/sparql/gsp/ that customers can use to access RDF graphs in Neptune.

Support for the Graph Store Protocol is available in all regions where Neptune is supported, and there is no additional charge to use it. To learn more, please visit the Neptune documentation for Graph Store Protocol.
