Method Detail


OWLDataProperty asOWLDataProperty()
If the property is a named data property then this method will obtain the property as such. The general pattern of use is that the isAnonymous method should first be used to determine if the property is named (i.e. not an object property expression such as inv(p)). If the property is named then this method may be used to obtain the property as a named property without casting.

The property as an OWLDataProperty if possible.
OWLRuntimeException - if the property is not a named property.
