    • Enum Constant Summary

      Enum Constants 
      Enum Constant Description
      DISJOINT
      Display: Disjoint
      Code Value: disjoint This is an explicit assertion that there is no mapping between the source and target concept.
      EQUAL
      Display: Equal
      Code Value: equal The definitions of the concepts are exactly the same (i.e.
      EQUIVALENT
      Display: Equivalent
      Code Value: equivalent The definitions of the concepts mean the same thing (including when structural implications of meaning are considered) (i.e.
      INEXACT
      Display: Inexact
      Code Value: inexact The target mapping overlaps with the source concept, but both source and target cover additional meaning, or the definitions are imprecise and it is uncertain whether they have the same boundaries to their meaning.
      NARROWER
      Display: Narrower
      Code Value: narrower The target mapping is narrower in meaning that the source concept.
      SPECIALIZES
      Display: Specializes
      Code Value: specializes The target mapping specializes the meaning of the source concept (e.g.
      SUBSUMES
      Display: Subsumes
      Code Value: subsumes The target mapping subsumes the meaning of the source concept (e.g.
      UNMATCHED
      Display: Unmatched
      Code Value: unmatched There is no match for this concept in the destination concept system.
      WIDER
      Display: Wider
      Code Value: wider The target mapping is wider in meaning than the source concept.

      • EQUIVALENT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum EQUIVALENT
        Display: Equivalent
        Code Value: equivalent The definitions of the concepts mean the same thing (including when structural implications of meaning are considered) (i.e. extensionally identical).
      • EQUAL

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum EQUAL
        Display: Equal
        Code Value: equal The definitions of the concepts are exactly the same (i.e. only grammatical differences) and structural implications of meaning are identical or irrelevant (i.e. intentionally identical).
      • WIDER

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum WIDER
        Display: Wider
        Code Value: wider The target mapping is wider in meaning than the source concept.
      • SUBSUMES

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum SUBSUMES
        Display: Subsumes
        Code Value: subsumes The target mapping subsumes the meaning of the source concept (e.g. the source is-a target).
      • NARROWER

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum NARROWER
        Display: Narrower
        Code Value: narrower The target mapping is narrower in meaning that the source concept. The sense in which the mapping is narrower SHALL be described in the comments in this case, and applications should be careful when attempting to use these mappings operationally.
      • SPECIALIZES

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum SPECIALIZES
        Display: Specializes
        Code Value: specializes The target mapping specializes the meaning of the source concept (e.g. the target is-a source).
      • INEXACT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum INEXACT
        Display: Inexact
        Code Value: inexact The target mapping overlaps with the source concept, but both source and target cover additional meaning, or the definitions are imprecise and it is uncertain whether they have the same boundaries to their meaning. The sense in which the mapping is narrower SHALL be described in the comments in this case, and applications should be careful when attempting to use these mappings operationally.
      • UNMATCHED

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum UNMATCHED
        Display: Unmatched
        Code Value: unmatched There is no match for this concept in the destination concept system.
      • DISJOINT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum DISJOINT
        Display: Disjoint
        Code Value: disjoint This is an explicit assertion that there is no mapping between the source and target concept.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum c : ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static ConceptMapEquivalenceEnum valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • getCode

        public String getCode()
        Returns the code associated with this enumerated value
      • getSystem

        public String getSystem()
        Returns the code system associated with this enumerated value
