    • Method Detail

      • getFeatures

        protected List getFeatures()
        Returns the list of features in this featureholder.
      • countFeatures

        public int countFeatures()
        Description copied from interface: FeatureHolder
        Count how many features are contained.
        Specified by:
        countFeatures in interface FeatureHolder
        a positive integer or zero, equal to the number of features contained
      • getSchema

        public FeatureFilter getSchema()
        Description copied from interface: FeatureHolder
        Return a schema-filter for this FeatureHolder. This is a filter which all Features immediately contained by this FeatureHolder will match. It need not directly match their child features, but it can (and should!) provide information about them using FeatureFilter.OnlyChildren filters. In cases where there is no feature hierarchy, this can be indicated by including FeatureFilter.leaf in the schema filter.

        For the truly non-informative case, it is possible to return FeatureFilter.all. However, it is almost always possible to provide slightly more information that this. For example, Sequence objects should, at a minimum, return FeatureFilter.top_level. Feature objects should, as a minimum, return FeatureFilter.ByParent(new FeatureFilter.ByFeature(this)).
