Jena - a semantic web framework

Hello! Today I will introduce Jena - a framework for building semantic web applications.


From the official site of Jena:
Jena is a Java framework for building Semantic Web applications. It provides a programmatic environment for RDFRDFS and OWLSPARQL and includes a rule-based inference engine.
Jena is open source and grown out of work with the HP Labs Semantic Web Programme.
The Jena Framework includes:
  • A RDF API
  • Reading and writing RDF in RDF/XML, N3 and N-Triples
  • An OWL API
  • In-memory and persistent storage
  • SPARQL query engine
Besides, Jena's documentation in sourceforge I found very useful this article by IBM for an introduction on how Jena works.
Another useful link, is this youtube video, which gives detailed instructions on using Jena in Netbeans. I don't know what language is this, but I understood what to do. :)

Cheers,
Angeliki
