Jena (http://jena.sourceforge.net/) provides RDFS support including 
instance validation and enables you to list all the classes and properties 
in your schema.

There is no validation of the RDFS itself (other than being syntactically 
correct RDF) but there that is because there is very little validation 
possible with RDFS. About the only violations possible are datatype 
conflicts which are instance-level checks.

Did you have any specific sorts of validation in mind that you think might 
be possible with RDFS?
