Enum ConceptMapEquivalence

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • RELATEDTO

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence RELATEDTO
        The concepts are related to each other, and have at least some overlap in meaning, but the exact relationship is not known
      • EQUIVALENT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence 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 ConceptMapEquivalence 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).
      • SUBSUMES

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence SUBSUMES
        The target mapping subsumes the meaning of the source concept (e.g. the source is-a target).
      • NARROWER

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence NARROWER
        The target mapping is narrower in meaning than 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 ConceptMapEquivalence SPECIALIZES
        The target mapping specializes the meaning of the source concept (e.g. the target is-a source).
      • INEXACT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence 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.
      • DISJOINT

        public static final ConceptMapEquivalence DISJOINT
        This is an explicit assertion that there is no mapping between the source and target concept.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static ConceptMapEquivalence[] 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 (ConceptMapEquivalence c : ConceptMapEquivalence.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static ConceptMapEquivalence 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
