Overview

This class computes Jaro-Winkler distance, which adds prefix-matching bonus to Jaro distance.

Constant Summary collapse

DEFAULT_BOOST_THRESHOLD =

Add the prefix bonus only when the Jaro distance is above this value. In other words, if the Jaro distance is less than this value, JaroWinkler.distance returns the raw Jaro distance.

0.7
DEFAULT_SCALING_FACTOR =

How much the prefix bonus is weighted. This should not exceed 0.25.

0.1
MAX_COMMON_PREFIX_LENGTH =

Cutoff the common prefix length to this value if it's longer than this.
