> When FSUtil.getFeature(fs, feature, type) is called on a feature that is multi-valued
and type is Object, then the method fails with a message like
> {noformat}
> Unable to coerce value of feature [de.tudarmstadt.ukp.inception.api.kb.type.Fact:object]
with type [de.tudarmstadt.ukp.inception.api.kb.type.FactObjectLink[]] into [java.lang.Object]
> {noformat}
> This is because Object is no an array or collection type. However, FSUtil.getFeatures
should handle this as a special case. When the Object is used, basically any return value
is acceptable. FSUtil should have defined behavior here, e.g. returning either an array or
a list representation of the multi-value.
> This is what current work-around code looks like:
> {code}
>     private Object getValue(FeatureStructure fs, AnnotationFeature aFeature)
>     {
>         Object value;
>         
>         Feature f = fs.getType().getFeatureByBaseName(aFeature.getName());
>         if (f.getRange().isPrimitive()) {
>             value = FSUtil.getFeature(fs, aFeature.getName(), Object.class);
>         }
>         else if (FSUtil.isMultiValuedFeature(fs, f)) {
>             value = FSUtil.getFeature(fs, aFeature.getName(), List.class);
>         }
>         else {
>             value = FSUtil.getFeature(fs, aFeature.getName(), FeatureStructure.class);
>         }
>         
>         return value;
>     }
> {code}
