Domain (if applicable) General
Alignment problem addressed A class in one ontology is aligned to a class in another ontology and the criteria

for membership in the class are specified by an attribute value at the end of a path.

Alignment solution The two classes in two ontologies are provided along with a statement involving

either one class or both classes. This statement is a precondition for the correspondence. This pattern is agnostic to whether the correspondence is unidirectional or bidirectional. However, if the correspondence is bidirectional (equivalence relation), the same precondition applies for both directions.

Problem example
Solution example Example correspondence:
    <Class rdf:about="o1 :Person"/>
        <Relation rdf:about="o1 :workplace"/>
          <Relation rdf:about="o1 :address"/>
          <Property rdf:about="o1 :city"/></next>
     <comparator rdf:resource="xsd:not-equal"/>
        <Relation rdf:about="o1 :address"/>
        <Property rdf:about="o1 :city"/>
  <Class rdf:about="o2 :Commuter">
