Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-360) Add CAS change notifications
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2007 15:04:26 GMT

Jörn Kottmann commented on UIMA-360:

I need a change notification layer for the cas editor.  The different parts of the ui (editor,
outline view, properties view, etc.) only know the model (CAS) and how to display it, if the
model is changed the views must be updated. The problem is that the views do not know each
other, so they need change notification to know how the model has changed e.g. annotation
was removed/added, annotation span was adjusted, etc.

I am not sure why do say this is a performance problem. A client would implement a listener
interface and adds/registers
an instance of it. Then the uima code calls the listener if a change occurred. 
Sure this slows the uima code a little bit, but the key point is that it only slows the code
if there are registered listeners. 
If there are no registered listeners the code is as fast as without change notifications.
