Subject Re: How to deal with types which define allowed values?
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2011 11:51:29 GMT
Hi Jörn,

> Does LowLevelTypeSystem.getStringSet simply return an empty array in the case someone
defined a string subtype but does not define allowed values? Or is it possible to define a
string subtype with an empty set of allowed values?

It is possible to define a string sub-type without any allowed values and it this case you
get an empty array. I used this little test case:

		TypeSystemDescription tsd = TypeSystemDescriptionFactory
		CAS cas = CasCreationUtils.createCas(tsd, null, null);

		ResourceSpecifierFactory factory = UIMAFramework.getResourceSpecifierFactory();
		TypeSystem typeSystem = cas.getTypeSystem();
		Type type = typeSystem.getType("POS");

		// check for string subtypes
		LowLevelTypeSystem lts = typeSystem.getLowLevelTypeSystem();
		final int typeCode = lts.ll_getCodeForType(type);
		String[] strings = lts.ll_getStringSet(typeCode);
		for (int i = 0; i < strings.length; i++) {
