I'm not aware of any released implementation in Java, though I
gather some are in the works. Danny?

The GRDDL specification, in progress, is http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl/ .

I intend to add an appendix to the specification
describing a sample implementation, but the specification
doesn't constrain the way GRDDL processors are
implemented.

We do have an Appendix: Available Software and Services
  http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl/#implExp
that refers to open source implementation
efforts in python, PHP, C, and XSLT. 

(Perhaps that appendix should move to the ESW Wiki,
a la http://esw.w3.org/topic/SparqlImplementations ?)

There is also a growing selection of test cases that should be
pretty helpful for building an implementation.

p.s. I'm copying public-grddl-comments@w3.org, which
is the mailing list we have set up for
comments from outside the Working Group.
public-grddl-wg is for WG participants.
I see TopQuadrant is a W3C member
organization (http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List )
so you're more than welcome to join the Working
Group; for details, see the membership section
of the Working Group homepage
