I can't tell from the trace whether you are mapping the import URLs to
local files or are loading directly from the URL. If loading from local
files then you really need suffixes on those. I'll assume you are
loading from the URL ...
OntModels use a somewhat older stack of tools (FileManager) which
guesses the language based on the suffix, with a default of RDF/XML, and
then relies on content negotiation to deliver the guessed format. Since
your resources don't support conneg and don't support RDF/XML (the
official default) that's not going to work.
One option might be to create a subclass of FileManager which overrides
readModelWorker to either load the data via the newer RDFDataMgr which
has more sophisticated conneg support, or to change the default syntax
to Turtle. Then install that FileManager in the OntDocumentManager you
use for your loading.

Over on the SWEET ontology suite  we recently changed out canonical

I am experiencing issues when I attempt to load the SWEET 'master' file
, which essentially produces a graph by importing every file within the
ontology suite. The code I use to do this is as follows.
((OntModel) m).read(url, null, lang); //Where lang is the string "TTL" or
"TURTLE" depending on previous logic.
The stack trace I get is as follows 
As you can see it loads the sweetAll file correctly but chokes on the
imported resource http://sweetontology.net/realmSoil, which is also a TTL
serialization but with no file suffix. The stack trace indicates that an
attempt is being made to parse the resource as RDF/XML... which in this
case is incorrect.
Any hints on how to override/define this behaviour?
Another related question, the large stack trace I receive from the above
parsing activity seems to also indicate that the OntModel.read logic
randomly processes imports when processing a resource such as . Is this
Thanks for any hits folks, I appreciate it.
