/**
 * A serializable class containing the information passed to and returned from Analysis Engine
 * Services.
 * <p>
 * It is not required that Analysis Engine Services use this class. It is provided as a convenience
 * for those services that communicate using binary data.
 * <p>
 * This object contains state information extracted from an {@link AnalysisProcessData}. The
 * <code>AnalysisProcessData</code> object itself is not serializable, because it contains the
 * <code>CAS</code> object. CASes are heavyweight objects and should not be created and destroyed
 * with each network call.
 * <p>
 * Instead, to pass Analysis Process Data to a remote service, one should create a
 * <code>ServiceDataCargo</code> and send that to the remote service.
 * <p>
 * A <code>ServiceDataCargo</code> can be unmarshalled into an existing
 * <code>AnalysisProcessData</code> by calling the {@link #unmarshalInto(AnalysisProcessData)}
 * method. Alternatively, the CAS state can be unmarshalled separately by calling the
 * {@link #unmarshalCas(CAS)} method.
