SPARQL is a powerful query language to manipule RDF data. Rule-based inference over RDF, as Jena reasoner supports, allows storing and manipulation of knowledge. Furthermore, a RDF rule-based inference engine allows to overcome some of OWL expressiveness limitations. Combining SPARQL with rules brings a more powerful way to represent knowledge and increase the expressiveness in Jena.
