The Fast query engine is a requirement as a supporting tool for the semantic web technology application such as Electronic Commerce environ. As the large data is represented using the effective data representation called RDF. The focus of this paper is to optimize the specific type of the query called Cyclic query and star query on main-memory RDF data model using ARQ query engine of Jena. For the considered problem, we ruminate a Jaya algorithm for rearrangement of the order of triple pattern and also compare the results with an already proposed approach in the literature. The evaluation result shows that Jaya performs better in terms of execution time in comparison to Ant Colony Optimization.
