Naive-Bayes classifiers: q2_rescript vs q2_feature-classifier

I have seen that RESCRIPt is now part of the core q2-amplicon-2024.2 release. Great!
There are now two plugins available to create naive-Bayes classifiers:
qiime feature-classifier fit-classifier-naive-bayes
qiime rescript evaluate-fit-classifier

Do both plugins use the same tools to create the classifiers? In other words: are the resulting classifiers equivalent to each other?


Yes, they are equivalent. The RESCRIPt action evaluate-fit-classifier just runs a pipeline that wraps the q2-feature-classifier action. It takes much longer (as a pipeline is run to fit and then test the classifier and evaluate results) and the resulting classifier is equivalent.
