Method Detail

addDisjointClass

void addDisjointClass(RDFSClass disjointClass)
Adds a class to the list of disjoint classes of this.

Parameters:
disjointClass - the disjoint class to add

addEquivalentClass

void addEquivalentClass(RDFSClass equivalentClass)
Adds a given class to the list of equivalent classes of this. This will establish a bidirectional superclass relationship between the two classes.

Parameters:
equivalentClass - the RDFSClass to add as equivalent class

addInferredSuperclass

void addInferredSuperclass(RDFSClass superclass)
Adds a computed superclass, as the result of a classification. This will automatically add the inverse direction, too.

Parameters:
superclass - the computed superclass to add

createOWLIndividual

OWLIndividual createOWLIndividual(String name)
Creates a new individual of this (assuming this is not a metaclass).

Parameters:
name - the name of the new instance or null for a default value
Returns:
the new instance

getAllValuesFrom

RDFResource getAllValuesFrom(RDFProperty property)
Gets the allowed class for a given property. This is the filler of an allValuesFrom restriction, or the range of the property (if no restriction has been defined).


getClassificationStatus

int getClassificationStatus()
Gets the classification status (whether this class is marked as inconsistent or not).

Returns:
one of the OWLNames.CLASSIFICATION_STATUS constants

getDefinition

RDFSClass getDefinition()
Gets the first equivalent class of this, or null if none is equivalent.

Returns:
the first equivalent class

getDirectRestrictions

Collection getDirectRestrictions()
Deprecated. will be deleted shortly, replaced with getRestrictions(false)

See Also:
getRestrictions()

getHasValue

Object getHasValue(RDFProperty property)
Gets the value of an arbitrary owl:hasValue restriction defined on this class. Note that this will also check for restrictions defined on superclasses.

Parameters:
property - the property to look for hasValue restrictions on
Returns:
the restriction value or null if none is defined.

getHasValues

Collection getHasValues(RDFProperty property)
Gets a collection of values for all owl:hasValue restrictions defined on this class. Note that this will also check for restrictions defined on superclasses.

Parameters:
property - the property to look for hasValue restrictions on
Returns:
a collection of fillers for the hasValue restrictions on this class and the property given as argument.

getInferredEquivalentClasses

Collection getInferredEquivalentClasses()

getInferredSubclasses

Collection getInferredSubclasses()
Gets the subclasses that were computed by the most recent call of a classifier.

Returns:
a Collection of RDFSClass objects

getInferredSuperclasses

Collection getInferredSuperclasses()
Gets the superclasses that were computed by the most recent call of a classifier.

Returns:
a Collection of RDFSClass objects

getMaxCardinality

int getMaxCardinality(RDFProperty property)
Gets the maximum number of values that are allowed for a given property at this class. This method essentially returns the filler of any owl:maxCardinality or owl:cardinality restrictions that are defined on it, either directly, or in its superclasses. If the property is functional, then this method always returns 1. If neither functionality nor restrictions are found, the method delivers -1.

Parameters:
property - the property to get the maximum cardinality of
Returns:
the maximum cardinality or -1 if there is no limit

getMinCardinality

int getMinCardinality(RDFProperty property)
Gets the minimum number of values that are allowed for a given property at this class. This method essentially returns the filler of any owl:minCardinality or owl:cardinality restrictions that are defined on it, either directly, or in its superclasses.

Parameters:
property - the property to get the minimum cardinality of
Returns:
the minimum cardinality or 0 if there is no limit

getRestrictions

Collection getRestrictions()
Same as getRestrictions(false).

Returns:
a Collection of (direct) OWLRestrictions objects

getRestrictions

Collection getRestrictions(boolean includingSuperclassRestrictions)
Gets all Restrictions that are defined on this class or (optionally) its superclasses. In case superclasses are also considered, the method filters out those restrictions that have been "overloaded" further down. For example, if a subclass defines an owl:minCardinality restriction that narrows another owl:minCardinality on the same property at a higher class, then only the first restriction is being returned.

Parameters:
includingSuperclassRestrictions - true to also include restrictions from named superclasses
Returns:
a Collection of OWLRestriction objects
See Also:
getDirectRestrictions()

getRestrictions

Collection getRestrictions(RDFProperty property,
                           boolean includingSuperclassRestrictions)
Gets all restrictions that are defined on a given property. This is similar to getRestrictions(includingSuperclassRestrictions) but with only those restrictions that restrict the selected property.

Parameters:
property - the property to get the restrictions about
includingSuperclassRestrictions - true to also include restrictions from named superclasses
Returns:
the restrictions on property

getSomeValuesFrom

RDFResource getSomeValuesFrom(RDFProperty property)
Gets the filler of any defined someValuesFrom restriction for a given property.


getSubclassesDisjoint

boolean getSubclassesDisjoint()
Checks whether all subclasses of this are declared to be disjoint.

Returns:
true if the all children disjoint flag is set

hasNamedSuperclass

boolean hasNamedSuperclass()
Checks whether this has at least one named direct superclass. This invariant should always be true in a consistent model.

Returns:
true iff there is at least one named direct superclass

isConsistent

boolean isConsistent()
Determines whether this class has been flagged as being inconsistent or not.

Returns:
true if the class is consistent, false if the class is inconsistent.

isDefinedClass

boolean isDefinedClass()
Checks if this is a "defined" class, with necessary and sufficient conditions. This is equivalent to getDefinition() != null.

Returns:
true if this has a definition

isProbeClass

boolean isProbeClass()
Checks if this has been marked as a probe class, using the protege:probeClass annotation property.

Returns:
true if this is a probe class

removeDisjointClass

void removeDisjointClass(RDFSClass disjointClass)
Removes a disjoint class of this. If the disjoint class is anonymous, it is completely deleted from the knowledge base.

Parameters:
disjointClass - the disjoint class to remove

removeEquivalentClass

void removeEquivalentClass(RDFSClass equivalentClass)
Removes an equivalent class. If the equivalent class is anonymous, it is completely removed from the knowledge base. Otherwise, this method removes the bidirectional superclass relationship between the two classes.

Note that an alternative to using this method is to remove either class from the superclasses of the other (in Protege, two OWL classes are treated as equivalent iff they are direct superclasses of each other).

Parameters:
equivalentClass -

removeInferredSuperclass

void removeInferredSuperclass(RDFSClass superclass)
Removes a computed superclass, as the result of a classification. This will automatically remove the inverse direction, too.

Parameters:
superclass - the computed superclass to remove

setClassificationStatus

void setClassificationStatus(int value)
Sets the classification status of this.

Parameters:
value - one of OWLNames.CLASSIFICATION_STATUS_xxx

setDefinition

void setDefinition(RDFSClass definingClass)
Removes all equivalent classes and then adds the given class (as definition). If after the call no other named direct superclasses would remain, the method adds owl:Thing to the superclasses.

Parameters:
definingClass - the new equivalent class

setSubclassesDisjoint

void setSubclassesDisjoint(boolean value)
Sets the value of the protege:subclassesDisjoint flag at this class. Note that this operation is only permitted if the protege metadata ontology has been imported, i.e. the protege:subclassesDisjoint property must exist.

Parameters:
value - the new value
