I think this question would probably be more appropriate at Sesame's web
forum[1] or (since it's a question about Sesame 2, which is still under
development) the Sesame developers mailinglist[2], but to give a brief
answer to your question anyway: you can get a hold of the underlying
Sail by using Repository.getSail() (note that in the current SVN version
of Sesame 2 this method has been moved from the Repository interface to
the specific SailRepository implementation). Then, you should register
yourself (well... an object you created anyway ;)) on the Sail as a
SailChangedListener. You will then be notified of any changes to the Sail.

A delta is a bit difficult to realize at present, since the
SailChangedEvent does not currently give you that information - we are
considering extending it to do so though.

HTH.

Cheers,

Jeen
