In the Java world there is an historical incompatibility issue between the two major RDF toolkits: Apache Jena and OpenRDF Sesame. But behind this effort there is a completely different approach than before. This library does not pretend to be a generic API wrapping those libraries, but a set of interfaces for the RDF 1.1 concepts that can be used to expose cores concepts using common Java interfaces. In the initial phase commons-rdf is focused on a subset of the core concepts defined by RDF 1.1 (URI/IRI, Blank Node, Literal, Triple, and Graph). In particular, Commons RDF aims to provide a type-safe, non-general API that covers RDF 1.1. In a future phase we may define interfaces for Datasets or Quads.

Counts in core contributors from both Jena and Sesame, But it will live or die on its own merits!
