Having an annotation type cell type with allowed values: b cell, barrier epithelial cell etc.

On setting annotation -B cell, obtained from an import file, for cell type using this code:

annotatable.getAnnotationSet().getAnnotation(AnnotationType?).setValue(value);

I get an InvalidDataException?. I found out that this is because of the mismatch between B cell and b cell. once I changed either of them, it works fine.

Can an ignorecase equality be done in the base 2 code that does the setting of annotation values. May be a trim would also be reasonable.

It might be possible but I am a bit worried that it may break existing data. What I can do is to add a utility method in AnnotationType?. Something like this:

AnnotationType?.findValue(String value, boolean ignoreCase, boolean trim);

The method would return the string that is stored as one of the allowed values if it finds a match or null if it can't find a value.
