 * A type of {@link ResourceFactory} that produces resources by delegating to other Resource
 * Factories.
 * <p>
 * Resource Factories are registered with the composite factory by calling the
 * {@link #registerFactory(Class,ResourceFactory)} method. The type of
 * {@link org.apache.uima.resource.ResourceSpecifier} that the factory can handle is passed to this
 * method. In the event that more than one <code>ResourceFactory</code> is registered for the same
 * Resource Specifier class, the most recently registered factory will be tried first.

   * Registers a ResourceFactory with this composite factory.
