examples

returns examples as a list of TAPQuery objects

hardlimit

Methods Documentation

create_index(table_name, column_name, unique=False)[source]

Creates a table index in the catalog service.

Parameters:
table_name: str

Name of the table

column_name: str

Name of the column in the table

unique: bool

True for unique index, False otherwise

create_query(query=None, mode='sync', language='ADQL', maxrec=None, uploads=None, **keywords)[source]

create a query object that constraints can be added to and then executed. The input arguments will initialize the query with the given values.

Parameters:
baseurlstr

the base URL for the TAP service

querystr

the query string / parameters

modestr

the query mode (sync | async). default “sync”

languagestr

specifies the query language, default ADQL. useful for services which allow to use the backend query language.

maxrecint

specifies the maximum records to return. defaults to the service default.

uploadsdict

a mapping from table names to objects containing a votable.

create_table(name, definition, format='VOSITable')[source]

Creates a table in the catalog service.

Parameters:
name: str

Name of the table in the TAP service

definition: stream (object with a read method)

Definition of the table

format: str

Format of the table definition (VOSITable or VOTable).

describe(width=None)[source]

Print a summary description of this service.

This includes the interface capabilities, and the content description if it doesn’t contains multiple data collections (in other words, it is not a TAP service).

get_job(job_id)[source]

Returns the job corresponding to an ID. Note that the caller must be able to see the job in the current security context.

Parameters:
job_idstr

ID of the job to view

Returns:
JobSummary corresponding to the job ID
get_job_list(phases=None, after=None, last=None, short_description=True)[source]

lists jobs that the caller can see in the current security context. The list can be filtered on the server side by the phases of the jobs, creation date time or Note that by default jobs in ‘ARCHIVED` phase are not returned.

Parameters:
phases: list of str

Union of job phases to filter the results by.

after: datetime

Return only jobs created after this datetime

last: int

Return only the most recent number of jobs

short_description: flag - True or False

If True, the jobs in the list will contain only the information corresponding to the TAP ShortJobDescription object (job ID, phase, run ID, owner ID and creation ID) whereas if False, a separate GET call to each job is performed for the complete job description.

Returns:
list of JobSummary
load_table(name, source, format='tsv')[source]

Loads content to a table

Parameters:
name: str

Name of the table

source: stream with a read method

Stream containing the data to be loaded

format: str

Format of the data source: tab-separated values(tsv), comma-separated values (csv) or FITS table (FITSTable)

remove_table(name)[source]

Remove a table from the catalog service (Equivalent to drop command in DB).

Parameters:
name: str

Name of the table in the TAP service

run_async(query, language='ADQL', maxrec=None, uploads=None, **keywords)[source]

runs async query and returns its result

Parameters:
querystr, dict

the query string / parameters

languagestr

specifies the query language, default ADQL. useful for services which allow to use the backend query language.

maxrecint

the maximum records to return. defaults to the service default

uploadsdict

a mapping from table names to objects containing a votable

Returns:
TAPResult

the query instance

Raises:
DALServiceError

for errors connecting to or communicating with the service

DALQueryError

for errors either in the input query syntax or other user errors detected by the service

DALFormatError

for errors parsing the VOTable response
