Not really a Java guy, so I don't think I can help here.

As I referenced, I used the endpoint. Perhaps you haven't updated
that yet, the version at the bottom of the page says 0.9.1-SNAPSHOT from
2014-04-13, so it's reasonably recent.

Looks like there are several comments in there relating to this already. If the snapshot version
doesn't include this, then that would explain it.

Semargl [1] and clj-rdfa [2] are quite performant (substantially faster than the any23 endpoint
[3]) and fully conforms to the spec.

Excellent; once it's updated, you can either try pointing the RDFa test harness yourself,
or feel free to contact me for support.

The service is run by the RDFa community; the test suite there is used to determine
conformance of processors claiming to support RDFa 1.0 or 1.1, which is where the EARL reports
used to generate the overall conformance report come from. The any23 endpoint is configured
in for informational purposes, along with that of most conforming processors. The overall
implementation report for RDFa 1.1 can be found here:

You can either run the service by cloning the website <>
and running it using the run-suite script, or most easily, simply enter the endpoint of your
RDFa processor (such as and it will be run automatically from the
web page. This gives detailed conformance reports for each test across all host languages
and RDFa variations. I'd be happy to work with you on this.

Let me know if I can help further; it would be great if any23 becomes 100% conformant for


P.S., there are also some Microdata to RDF tests at <>
if you're interested.
