|Oracle Java CAPS Master Index Standardization Engine Reference Java CAPS Documentation|
The Master Index Standardization Engine works together with the Master Index Match Engine to provide data parsing, data standardization, phonetic encoding, and record matching capabilities for external applications, such as master index applications. Before records can be compared to evaluate the possibility of a match, the data contained in those records must be normalized and in certain cases phonetically encoded or parsed. Once the data is conditioned, the match engine determines a match weight for each field defined for matching. The standardization engine is built on a flexible framework that allows you to customize the standardization process and extend standardization rules.
