Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2478) Add CAS interface method that allows user to obtain a list of Markers associated with a given CAS
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2013 15:49:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13702077#comment-13702077
] 

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-2478:
--------------------------------------

I see that the official CAS interface has had for a long time, a method "createMarker" - so
the point #2 is perhaps not as significant.  However, the documentation for the CAS in the
docbooks does not mention markers at all.  

So, on balance, I would like to remove this from the CAS interface (for now) but keep it in
the CASImpl.  Any objections or other views?

> Add a convenience function that removes the need for applications that create Markers
for many CASes to separately manage them (e.g., map CAS to its related Marker), and thereby
simplify application code.
> Today's current level of support allows a user to create a Marker for a given CAS (through
the createMarker() method which is part of the CAS interface).
> This proposed support will allow the user to subsequently query a given CAS and obtain
a complete list of Markers created against this CAS. This function is a natural extension
to the given level of support (i.e., if one can create Marker for a given CAS, one should
be able to query the CAS to find said Marker.)
> Having this support significant simplifies application code, offering advantages from
a memory overhead, performance, and maintainability standpoint.  For example, the application
won't need to build and maintain a map of CASes to Markers, given the Marker is hanging off
the CAS to begin with.
