Hi Reto,
thank you very much for you quick and straight to the point reply.
I have not had time to try the example out, but I'll come back here if
I have problems when I do it.

Just a couple of comments/questions inline.

This is exactly what I was searching for, thanks.

Great, all clear. Thanks.

Is this for parsing and serialising RDF/JSON?

I'll have a look at it, we now have support for RDF/JSON in Jena (but
it has been added only recently therefore not many have been
using/testing it). It's this [1] RDF/JSON. While the W3C agrees on
what RDF/JSON should be. :-)

Good. Thanks.

Oh... good to know. I think I was using the old ones (i.e.
org.apache.clerezza) (by mistake).
