public interface AbstractCas

The base interface extended by all CAS (Common Analysis System) interfaces in the UIMA SDK. A CAS is an object that provides access to an artifact and metadata about that artifact. Analysis Components, such as Annotators, read from a CAS interface in order to do their analysis and may write new metadata back to the CAS interface.

The UIMA SDK provides the CAS interfaces JCas and CAS, but in future versions, other CAS interfaces may be available.
