There's several options. In Java, there's Apache Jena as already 
mentioned by others, or as an alternative there's OpenRDF Sesame.

In the case of Sesame, query performance is a factor of the actual 
backing database that you choose - Sesame's pre-provided stores perform 
fine for most "medium sized" datasets, but if your needs are beyond that 
you can find plenty of third-party RDF database implementations (both 
open source and commercial) that are fully compliant with the Sesame 
APIs - making switching backends halfway through your project easy as 
you won't have to change your code.

A bit of general advice, by the way: regardless of which tool you 
choose, don't rely on published benchmarks too much to decide which tool 
"performs best". Try out several tools and see how well they work _for 
you_. Your requirements in terms of types of query, dataset size and 
form, etc. are likely different from any standard benchmark, and 
performance results may be significantly different.
