I think what I want to do is:

1. load an existing owl ontology
2. create a series of statements add them to the model
3. execute a couple of queries against the model (SPARQL queries?)

I downloaded the IODT toolkit from IBM alphaworks and I think the
LoadAndSaveOwlbyOWLFile shows me how to load and parse and owl document into
an owl ontology. (Please correct me if I am using terms incorrectly.)

OWLParser parser = new OWLParserImpl();

//New an OWL Document
OWLDocument food = new OWLDocumentImpl("./testcase/food.owl", null,

//Add the document into the parser

//Start to parse OWL documents and get OWL ontologies
OWLOntology ontofood = parser.parseOWLDocument(food);

Now I want to add a statement

//create some RDF statement
RDFSFactory rdfsFactory = RDFSFactory.eINSTANCE;

RDFSResource subjectResource =
rdfsFactory.createRDFSResource(ontofood , subjectURI);

RDFProperty subjectProperty = rdfsFactory.createRDFProperty(ontofood
, predicateURI);

RDFSLiteral literal = rdfsFactory.createRDFSLiteral(ontofood ,

RDFStatement statement = rdfsFactory.createRDFStatement(ontofood ,
subjectResource, subjectProperty, literal);

Now is statement already in the ontofood ontology?

How would I go about writing a query to find the all subjectResource items
with the same subjectProperty?

Thanks for any help - Glenn
