sem.bnode(
   [$value as xs.anyAtomicType]
) as sem.blank

Summary

This function returns an identifier for a blank node, allowing the construction of a triple that refers to a blank node. This XQuery function backs up the SPARQL BNODE() function.

This function is a built-in.

Parameters
$value If provided, the same blank node identifier is returned for the same argument value passed to the function.

Example

var sem = require("/MarkLogic/semantics.xqy");

var person1 = sem.bnode();
var person2 = sem.bnode();
var t1 = sem.triple(person1,
         sem.iri("http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type"),
	       sem.iri("http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person"));
var t2 = sem.triple(person2,
	       sem.iri("http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type"),
	       sem.iri("http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person"));
var t3 = sem.triple(person1,
	       sem.iri("http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/knows"), person2)
var results = new Array();
results.push(t1, t2, t3);
results;
