h1. SPARQL endpoint

The Sesame HTTP server is a fully fledged SPARQL endpoint.
The Sesame HTTP server is a fully fledged SPARQL endpoint - the Sesame HTTP protocol is a super-set of the [SPARQL 1.1 protocol|http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-protocol/] - that provides an interface for transmitting SPARQL queries and updates to a SPARQL processing service and returning the results via HTTP to the entity that requested them.

Any tools or utilities designed to interoperate with the SPARQL protocol will function with OWLIM when deployed using the Sesame HTTP server, i.e. the openrdf-sesame Web application.

h1. Graph Store HTTP Protocol

As of Sesame version 2.6.3, the SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol is fully supported for direct and indirect graph names. The [W3C working draft|http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-http-rdf-update/] has the most details, although further information can be found in the [Sesame user guide|http://www.openrdf.org/doc/sesame2/system/ch08.html].

This protocol supports the management of RDF statements in named graphs in the REST style, by providing the ability to get, delete, add to or overwrite statement in named graphs using the basic HTTP methods.
