Resource produceResource (Class<?extends Resource > aResourceClass, ResourceSpecifier aSpecifier, Map< String, Object > aAdditionalParams) throws ResourceInitializationException

Detailed Description

A ResourceFactory is used to acquire instances of Resources.

The method produceResource(Class,ResourceSpecifier,Map) is used to produce an instance of a Resource. The input to this method is a ResourceSpecifier, which contains all of the information that this factory can use to acquire a reference to the resource.

Most applications will not need to interact with this interface. Applications will generally create resources using the static methods on the org.apache.uima.UIMAFramework class.

Note that multiple threads may attempt to manufacture resources simulatenously, so implementations of this interface MUST be threadsafe.

Developers needing to provide their own ResourceFactory may wish to consider using the provided org.apache.uima.util.SimpleResourceFactory implementation.
