Interface CyNetworkReader

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface CyNetworkReader
    extends Task
    An extension of the Task interface that returns an array of CyNetwork objects that are read as part of the Task. An additional method provides an option for readers to create CyNetworkViews from the networks it has read as well. Instances of this interface are created by InputStreamTaskFactory objects registered as OSGi services, which are in turn processed by associated reader manager objects that distinguish InputStreamTaskFactories based on the DataCategory associated with the CyFileFilter.

    Cytoscape Backwards Compatibility (SPI Interface): We expect that this interface will be implemented. Therefore to maintain backwards compatibility this interface will only be modified for major version updates.
