We've been using Jena as well in an ongoing pilot project creating ontologies/taxonomies.  We've processed both RDF and DAML with Jena.  We're happy with it as well.  Can't beat the price....

we are using Jena in our research project ( if that qualifies for 
'real-world' experience ;) We have been using this tool for a while to 
parse RDF data representing ontologies and are happy with it so far.  It 
is easy to use and understand and is reliable.
