Re: refining DC.relation w/ Jena

your questions are more related to only Jena then subject of this list -
general RDF/SW problems,  so it'd better send them to jena yahoo-group
I'm forwarding answer to
1 yes, it is a right way to implement DC refinements

2 when you write RDF model
you specify "base uri"
lCom.html#write(, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)
If you use this method then in written version of RDF model relative url
will be substituted by baseURI + relative
But as far as I understand it does not affect model itself, so you'll not
get right absolute URI  calling  getURI method of Resource
