I suppose JSON-LD is made for RDF and that I have to find instead a kind of JAXB for JSON and adapt its output to make it compatible with JSON-LD?

Probably the best way to get started is using the "fromRDF" api call to get from an RDF graph into JSON-LD expanded form, and then compact or frame to make the structure of the JSON-LD match your needs.

That's exactly what we were exploring in the Serennoa FP7 project:
JSON-LD views of the beans using REST. The indirect ways is thought
jtrioo using jsonld-java, but I'm sure we can improve the integration
with jersey.
