- FinalStep, ParallelStep, SimpleStep
public abstract class Step
- extends Object
Represents the next destination or destinations to which a CAS should be routed. A
Step is the output of the
Flow.next() method. A Flow should output an
instance of a concrete class that extends Step. Currently, these are:
SimpleStep - specifies a single AnalysisEngine to which the CAS should next be
ParallelStep - specifies multiple AnalysisEngine to which the CAS should next be
routed, where the relative order in which these Analysis Engines execute does not matter.
FinalStep - indicates that there are no more destinations for this CAS.
