Class OntologyTermProvenance

  extended by project35.soa.ontology.provenance.OntologyTermProvenance

public class OntologyTermProvenance
extends java.lang.Object

Describes an ontology label. Originally, ontology labels were just viewed as strings. However, some of the ontologists we've talked to advise us that each label might be associated with an identifier or a URL link. We give you the ability to choose the same label from multiple ontology services. Other people may want to know which list you got your labels from. As of this release, we're not sure how this feature will work out. Identifiers might be used to access some kind of web site.

e.g: "testosterone" might have an ID of "234" to mean it was a hormone. "testosterone" might have an ID of "555" to mean it's a steroid.

one day you might be able to click on a hyperlink "testosterone" in one of the fields, and be taken to one of these web pages: or

The URL field provides a more complete definition of a web page. Both of these fields are optional for now.
