It is not specified if the format returned is a new instance or not.This method uses the service providor framework to find format providers. If you add formats to the core biojava distribution, you must add the class name to the file
biojava-live/resources/META-INF/services/org.biojava.bio.program.formats.Format/ If you implement formats and place them in your own .jar files, you should put the class name in a similarly named file in your jar. This should mean that the format becomes automatically registered with the system.
