In the last decade, the volume of semantic data has increased exponentially, with the number of Resource Description Framework (RDF) datasets exceeding trillions of triples in RDF repositories. Hence, the size of RDF datasets continues to grow. However, with the increasing number of RDF triples, complex multiple RDF queries are becoming a significant demand. Sometimes, such complex queries produce many common sub-expressions in a single query or over multiple queries running as a batch. In addition, it is also difficult to minimize the number of RDF queries and processing time for a large amount of related data in a typical distributed environment encounter. To address this complication, we introduce a join query processing model for big RDF data, called JQPro. By adopting a MapReduce framework in JQPro, we developed three new algorithms, which are hash-join, sort-merge, and enhanced MapReduce-join for join query processing of RDF data. Based on an experiment conducted, the result showed that the JQPro model outperformed the two popular algorithms, gStore and RDF-3X, with respect to the average execution time. Furthermore, the JQPro model was also tested against RDF-3X, RDFox, and PARJs using the LUBM benchmark. The result showed that the JQPro model had better performance in comparison with the other models. In conclusion, the findings showed that JQPro achieved improved performance with 87.77% in terms of execution time. Hence, in comparison with the selected models, JQPro performs better.
