Subject [jira] [Created] (UIMA-3765) Always deliver default View to annotator process method
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2014 20:20:20 GMT
Eddie Epstein created UIMA-3765:

             Summary: Always deliver default View to annotator process method
                 Key: UIMA-3765
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-3765
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core Java Framework
            Reporter: Eddie Epstein
            Assignee: Eddie Epstein

Currently the CAS view delivered to an annotator's process method depends on two things: if
the annotator declares sofa capabilities, the base CAS view is delivered; else the default
view is delivered.

Based on a recent mailing list discussion, always delivering the default view would be simpler
and more intuitive.

This change in behavior should not break any existing annotator code as the base CAS view
delivered to view aware annotators essentially supports only the getView method, which will
continue to work.
