A few weeks ago I posted some suggestions for an improved java RDF API.
I've placed an implementation of these ideas at
<http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/jena/index.htm> .
The code supports in memory models.  David Megginson's RDFFilter is hooked
in so it can parse RDF serializations.  I suggest you use the version of
RDFFilter supplied in the distribution as it has some minor bug fixes.  Its
alpha code - it gets through the regression tests and runs the samples but
hasn't had much use other than that.  An SQL implementation may follow.
I think better tools will help encourage the adoption of RDF.  I'm looking
on this as an experiment to see whether this API brings any benefits.  So
I'd like some feedback.
