Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-6110) UIMA & GraphQL Tool
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2019 21:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-6110?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16902488#comment-16902488

Hai-Son Nguyen commented on UIMA-6110:

An initial step in making an interface for GraphQL is a tool to digest a type system descriptor
and produce a schema for GraphQL.

1) An issue of complexity is that the GraphQL schema requires enumerating inherited methods. 


2 ) Since all our type system types extend Annotation (extends AnnotationBase extends Top
extends FeaturesStructureImpl)

We may want to decide on how to specify how much of the inherited methods/properties we should
limit for the schema.


I think it can be straight-forward to read the type system and add the fields. The accounting
of fields that are "hiding" inherited fields need to be managed during the process as a special
case. The annotation viewer already specifies a type system for use so the UI can likely be
integrated with that existing tool.
