I don't have a generic library for content negotiation to offer but wanted
to briefly mention our current approach in the Marine Metadata
Interoperability project [1].  Hope this is useful information.

As a standard servlet, the URI resolver component of our MMI Ontology
Registry and Repository [2] uses the getHeaders method in HttpServelRequest,
and then a helper class [3], as a basis to resolve an ontology or term URI
in the appropriate format depending on the "accept" header sent by the
client, and according to [4], which pretty much is in compliance with [5].

Good luck,
