This working group has this document as an optional deliverable.

As I understand it, the aim is roughly to document the current landscape
of APIs for triple stores, and if it's found lacking, suggest possible
directions the W3C could advance it -- e.g. by standardising a useful

It's somewhat unfortunate that the schedule of work for the group places
it chronologically after the RDFa DOM API, given that surveying the
landscape of triple store APIs could help inform work on the DOM API.

Anyway, I've kickstarted an informal survey of RDF APIs on the Wiki
<http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/wiki/RDF-API>. If you've got the time,
it would be nice if you could add a summary of the API of your favourite
RDF toolkit (Redland, Jena, Seseme, ARC, rdfQuery, etc - take your
pick!) - just the basic CRUD-style operations. Then we can compare and
contrast - see how they differ, and in what ways they're similar.
