Detailed Description

A FlowConstraints object represents constraints on the order of execution of delegate Analysis Engines within an aggregate Analysis Engine. In the most constrained case, this is a fixed flow.

This interface implements no methods for flow constraint specification. It serves as a common superclass for different ways of specifying flow constraints.

Flow constraints must refer to delegate AnalysisEngines; the FlowConstraints object refers to these AEs using String identifiers. The FlowConstraints object does not assign any particular meaning to these Strings - it is the user of the FlowConstraints object that must understand how to map them to the AnalysisEngines themselves. It may be desirable to remap these identifiers; FlowConstraints implementations must support this via the remapIDs(Map) method.
