Steve, At one time there was a issue with the JAPI/SAPI design.... redundant stuff there, awkward to add things, etc. In glancing at it the other day it looked unfamiliar to me. Was this fixed, or is that still outstanding work we need to do? If so we should add comment to Daffodil-1909 to that effect, or link it to other JIRA tickets about that issue.

We do not currently provide the general scaladoc tree for all of daffodil online anywhere. And I'm hesitant to provide that since I view anything not in the daffodil-japi or daffodil-sapi subprojects as internal and subject to change (i.e. not suitable for an API). I think DAFFODIL-1909 that you just added is the right approach to solve this. We should add an abstract class/trait that provides a minimal and maintainable interface to the internals of the DISimple/DIComplex/etc. and make that trait available in the japi/sapi so that InfosetIOutputters can use it. Passing in DISimple/DIComplex/etc. directly to the InfosetOutputters may have been a mistake, but since there's really no Java/Scaladoc available for it I don't think we need to worry about breaking backwards compatibility since no one could really use this API as is. I suspect this new trait would essentially have one public method for each of the members in the DFDL Infoset ? - Steve  https://daffodil.apache.org/docs/dfdl/#_Toc398030646 On 02/22/2018 12:30 PM, Mike Beckerle wrote: > I was looking at our javadoc and scaladoc for rc2, as linked from here: > > > https://daffodil.apache.org/releases/2.1.0/ > > > My mental experiment was to write my own Java InfosetOutputter (something > requested by folks at AFRL) to directly output RDF triples from a parse. > > > This turns out to be impossible, as our scaladoc for InfosetOutputter, does > not allow one to drill into the DISimple, DIComplex or DIArray classes/traits > of the arguments to the InfosetOutputter method calls. > > Do we provide the general scaladoc tree for all of daffodil anywhere online > other than in a javadoc archive that can be pulled as a managed dependency? > > > > >
