        You might want to look at OWLJessKB [1]. You need 
Jess<http://herzberg.ca.sandia.gov/jess/> and Jena 
<http://jena.sourceforge.net/>to use this. Primarily used for reasoning 
but also has few rules that validate RDFS schema. Ontology API of Jena 
can be used for generating reports. You can also write arbitrarily rules 
and queries in Jess to extract information if you use OWLJessKB.


[1] "OWLJessKB is a description logic reasoner for the W3C's Ontology 
Web Language [1 
<http://edge.cs.drexel.edu/assemblies/software/owljesskb/#links>]. The 
semantics of the language is implemented using Jess, the Java Expert 
System Shell [2
