Hi Fabian,
I add stanbol-dev because I guess you missed to add it to the
recipient in your reply ;)

KReS and the Persistencestore both uses the Clerezza TCManager object
to store/retrieve ontologies.
In this context Ontologies are a special kind of RDF graphs, compliant
to the OWL specification. At the moment there is no way to query such
knowledge with SPARQL.
Another use case is related to the KReS reengineering components,
which both can store the output in RDF graphs, which at the moment
cannot be queried/retrieve from Stanbol.
So there is a missing step in Stanbol wrt knowledge access.
Additionally, the kres/rules module can operate on RDF graphs, so
creating new graphs or modifiyng existing ones. This is another case
where we need SPARQL querying capabilities.
I think this is possible by simply setup a JAX-RS class which bind a
Jena SPARQL processor to the TCManager instance.
