public class ForwardMatcher
extends MatcherYAAAJena
This is a simple matcher that forwards a given alignment if the input alignment is not available. In case you want to always use the given alignemnt even if the input alignment is available, then use ForwardAlwaysMatcher.

      public Alignment match​(org.apache.jena.ontology.OntModel source, org.apache.jena.ontology.OntModel target, Alignment inputAlignment, Properties properties) throws Exception
      Description copied from class: MatcherYAAAJena
      Aligns two ontologies specified via a Jena OntModel, with an input alignment as Alignment object, and returns the mapping of the resulting alignment. Note: This method might be called multiple times in a row when using the evaluation framework. Make sure to return a mapping which is specific to the given inputs.
      Specified by:
      match in interface IMatcher<org.apache.jena.ontology.OntModel,​Alignment,​Properties>
      Specified by:
      match in class MatcherYAAAJena
      Parameters:
      source - This OntModel represents the source ontology.
      target - This OntModel represents the target ontology.
      inputAlignment - This mapping represents the input alignment.
      properties - Additional properties.
      Returns:
      The resulting alignment of the matching process.
      Throws:
      Exception - Any exception which occurs during matching.
