Subject Re: YTEX installation Exception java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

You will get a similarity of 0 if one of the concepts isn't in the concept
graph.  Did you test this via the web app / rest service / command line?

YTEX ships with the umls concept graph (all level 0 source vocabs + snomed
ct) and the sct-rxnorm concept graph (snomed-ct + rxnorm)

When I run the concept similarity service from the command line, I get
these results for umls concept graph:
Concept 1       Concept 2       LCH     INTRINSIC_LCH   lcs(s)  corpus lcs
intrinsic lcs   paths
C0042776        C0001175        0.682817        0.261689
 C1140093|C0000000               C1140093

When I run with the sct-umls concept graph:
Concept 1       Concept 2       LCH     INTRINSIC_LCH   lcs(s)  corpus lcs
intrinsic lcs   paths
C0042776        C0001175        0.535563        0.267890        C0000000

Here is my command:
java -cp %CLASSPATH%
-Dlog4j.configuration=file:/%CTAKES_HOME%/config/log4j.xml -Xmx2g
org.apache.ctakes.ytex.kernel.metric.ConceptSimilarityServiceImpl -concepts
C0042776,C0001175 -lcs  -metrics LCH,INTRINSIC_LCH
java -cp %CLASSPATH%
-Dlog4j.configuration=file:/%CTAKES_HOME%/config/log4j.xml -Xmx2g
org.apache.ctakes.ytex.kernel.metric.ConceptSimilarityServiceImpl -concepts
C0042776,C0001175 -lcs  -metrics LCH,INTRINSIC_LCH

If you add the -lcs option you will get all the paths.

I think the high similarity you expect may not be modeled in the graph -
*AIDS* is a disease, *HIV* is-a *Virus* (that *causes AIDS*).  I'm not sure
if you can view *causes *as a hierarchical relationship.  If you want to,
you can create a concept graph that includes additional relationships (you
would have to check to see if this relationship is modeled in the UMLS).
