A very encouraging sign of a maturing technology is when the community grows to include experts outside of the dev team. There's a growing number of people outside our team who answer questions on the Jena list, and increasingly who write great articles on aspects of using Jena. In this case, Leigh Dodds describing using Jena in an application server such as a JSP container. Great stuff!

alert()calls as print statements.
rdf:parseType="Collection" is re-written in first/rest/nil format ... which is handy since Jim's parser doesn't handle parseType Collection.

I was musing to myself a couple of days ago why some music artists just seem to stop producing material. What happens to their creative drive? In particular, I was wondering why Kate Bush has stopped recording. Well, by an amazing coincidence I just found out that she has a new album ("Aerial") due out on Nov 7th, her first for twelve years. Excellent! And it's a double CD. Doubly excellent! I heard the news via a link from 101cd.com. Can't wait.

We're gearing up for release 2.3 of Jena, and I'm doing some refactoring on the OntDocumentManager. Specifically, I'd like to deprecate, and in later releases remove, support in the ODM for declaring default prefixes and for declaring the ontology language of a document. So this blog entry (and emails to the Jena mail lists jena-dev and jena developers) is a call for people to howl if the deprecation of these features would impact their projects.
