[protege-owl] Ancestor and Descendant classes

Rajverma

Hi List,

 

It seems that while getting the descendant and ancestor classes of the asserted ontology with the methods “VegetarianPizza.getNamedSubclasses(true)” and “VegetarianPizza.getNamedSuperclasses(true) “ respectively, then the class “VegetarianPizza” is also being included in it…

 

In this case we can interpret that it is because of the fact that every class is a subclass (superclass) of itself… but this behavior does not happen with the inferred ontology, why? Is it correct this way? or is it a bug?

 

 

Cheers,

Raj
