This package provides factory interfaces to be used by anyone wishing to provide export or writing capabilities to the rest of Cytoscape. To provide writing capabilities an App writer will implement an instance of CyWriterFactory that creates a fully configured task. Part of implementing CyWriterFactory involves providing a CyFileFilter, an interface used to define file extensions and types of data that can be written.
This package is useful primarily when used within the Task/TaskFactory framework used throughout Cytoscape. To simply write files from an App, consult the interfaces found in the Core Task API (org.cytoscape.task.*).
