This module provides integration of EC Corporate countries with Drupal.

The main module offers a corporate countries repository service which returns the Corporate countries data.

Table of contents:



This depends on the following software:

  • PHP >=8.1
  • Virtuoso (or equivalent) triple store which contains the RDF representations of the Country Publications Office (OP) vocabulary


This module indirectly depends on the drupal/sparql_entity_storage module, which requires a more updated version of easyrdf/easyrdf package.
First the correct version of this package should be installed:

composer require "easyrdf/easyrdf 0.10.0-alpha.1 as 0.9.2"

Then install this package and its dependencies:

composer require openeuropa/oe_corporate_countries

It is strongly recommended to use the provisioned Docker image for Virtuoso that contains already the OP vocabularies. To do this, add the image to your docker.compose.yml file:

    image: openeuropa/triple-store-dev
    - SPARQL_UPDATE=true
    - DBA_PASSWORD=dba
      - "8890:8890"

Otherwise, make sure you have the triple store instance running and have imported the required vocabularies.

Next, if you are using the Task Runner to set up your site, add the runner.yml configuration for connecting to the triple store. Under the drupal key:

    host: "sparql"
    port: "8890"

Still in the runner.yml, add the instruction to create the Drupal settings for connecting to the triple store. Under the drupal.settings.databases key:

      prefix: ""
      host: ${}
      port: ${drupal.sparql.port}
      namespace: 'Drupal\Driver\Database\sparql'
      driver: 'sparql'

Then you can proceed with the regular Task Runner commands for setting up the site.

Otherwise, ensure that in your site's setting.php file you have the connection information to your own triple store instance:

$databases["sparql_default"] = array(
  'default' => array(
    'prefix' => '',
    'host' => 'your-triple-store-host',
    'port' => '8890',
    'namespace' => 'Drupal\\Driver\\Database\\sparql',
    'driver' => 'sparql'

Development setup

You can build a development site using Docker and Docker Compose with the provided configuration.

Docker provides the necessary services and tools such as a web server and a database server to get the site running,
regardless of your local host configuration.



By default, Docker Compose reads two files, a docker-compose.yml and an optional docker-compose.override.yml file. By convention, the docker-compose.yml contains your base configuration and it's provided by default. The override file, as its name implies, can contain configuration overrides for existing services or entirely new services. If a service is defined in both files, Docker Compose merges the configurations.

Find more information on Docker Compose extension mechanism on the official Docker Compose documentation.


To start, run:

docker-compose up

It's advised to not daemonize docker-compose so you can turn it off (CTRL+C) quickly when you're done working. However, if you'd like to daemonize it, you have to add the flag -d:

docker-compose up -d


docker-compose exec web composer install

Please note: project files and directories are symlinked within the test site by using the OpenEuropa Task Runner's Drupal project symlink command.

If you add a new file or directory in the root of the project, you need to re-run drupal:site-setup in order to make sure they are be correctly symlinked.

If you don't want to re-run a full site setup for that, you can simply run:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:symlink-project
  • Install test site by running:
docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

Using default configuration, the development site files should be available in the build directory and the development site should be available at:

Running the tests

To run the grumphp checks:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/grumphp run

To run the phpunit tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/phpunit

To run the behat tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/behat

Step debugging

To enable step debugging from the command line, pass the XDEBUG_SESSION environment variable with any value to the container:

docker-compose exec -e XDEBUG_SESSION=1 web <your command>

Please note that, starting from XDebug 3, a connection error message will be outputted in the console if the variable is set but your client is not listening for debugging connections. The error message will cause false negatives for PHPUnit tests.

To initiate step debugging from the browser, set the correct cookie using a browser extension or a bookmarklet like the ones generated at
