Subject read/write resource sharing
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2007 16:05:45 GMT
What is the best practice for sharing read/write resources amongst 
analysis engines in an aggregate? For example, say you have an 
annotator early in a flow that reads a configuration file off disk in 
order determine its behavior. Then, the next annotator does 
something, and needs to write changes to the configuration file so 
that another annotator downstream, whose behavior is also determined 
by the contents of the configuration file, can read in the resource 
that contains the changes.

Does this make sense?

Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I can think of some ugly 
hacks, but it would be nice to know if I'm missing some portion of 
the API that supports this type of scenario.

Thanks, Andrew
