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.
