Interface SequenceValidator<T>

    • Method Detail

      • validSequence

        boolean validSequence​(int i,
                              T[] inputSequence,
                              String[] outcomesSequence,
                              String outcome)
        Determines whether a particular continuation of a sequence is valid. This is used to restrict invalid sequences such as those used in start/continue tag-based chunking or could be used to implement tag dictionary restrictions.
        i - The index in the input sequence for which the new outcome is being proposed.
        inputSequence - The input sequence.
        outcomesSequence - The outcomes so far in this sequence.
        outcome - The next proposed outcome for the outcomes sequence.
        true is the sequence would still be valid with the new outcome, false otherwise.
