Thank you for pointing this out, I was just about the send this message 
about our API. We have a beta version of OWL-S API available at

The API provides reading different versions of OWL-S (0.9, 1.0 as well 
as DAML-S 0.7) and generating the OWL-S output so you can use it as a 
version converter. Executing OWL-S services that has a WSDL grounding is 
provided in the API. Unfortunately documentation is not complete and not 
many examples exist in the package. However, javadocs 
(http://www.mindswap.org/2004/owl-s/api/docs/javadocs/) should help you 
get started and I'd be happy to answer questions.
