Class RDFSForwardRuleReasoner

All Implemented Interfaces:
Reasoner, RuleReasoner

public class RDFSForwardRuleReasoner extends GenericRuleReasoner
A pure forward chaining implementation of the RDFS closure rules based upon the basic forward rule interpreter. The normal mixed forward/backward implementation is generally preferred but this has two possible uses. First, it is a test and demonstration of the forward chainer. Second, if you want all the RDFS entailments for an entire dataset the forward chainer will be more efficient.
