You'd use the Jena library for the same reason you'd use any other library: because it does things you want to use in Java. Trust me, you wouldn't want to implement ontology handling, RDF store and SparQL querying yourself :-) The Jena web site has a tutorial, a "getting started" document and links to example code; that would be a good starting point.

Are you asking how to send an OutputStream to a file? That's what FileOutputStream is for.

If you don't know much about such topics, then I think there are better forums than this one, which is mostly about Java development topics.

I'm not aware of any (which is not to say that don't exist, I just don't know). Are you saying that you're trying to implement this without an understanding of the basics of OWL, SparQL, ontologies and such, and you're also not familiar with the relevant communities, web sites and so on? With all due respect, it doesn't sound like you're ready to tackle this particular problem yet. Consider getting a book and working your way through that.
