Interface AnnotatableProxy

All Superinterfaces:
AccessControlled, Annotatable, Identifiable
All Known Implementing Classes:
PluginConfiguration, PluginDefinition

public interface AnnotatableProxy
extends Annotatable

This interface is implemented by items that can be used to hold annotations that are intended for other items. This is for example used to enable plug-in configurations to hold annotation that can be copied to other items when a job using that configuration is executed. The RawDataFlatFileImporter supports this feature and can be used to automatically annotate a raw bioassay when raw data is imported.
