I read the link below and I have a few doubts regarding the representation of 
RDF schemas using RDBMS.

I am trying to create a registry of different models. There will be different 
namespaces. Can this be represented using the RDBMSs like JENA and the others 
mentioned in this article?

Also , by the storage mechanism described in the article, is it possible to 
search the database for a particular resource? i.e. a model based search?
