Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-5115:
--------------------------------------------------

I think `at(location).single()` is quite a different thing. at (between, 
covered by, etc.) is IMHO all referring to a "location constraint" whereas 
single is a cardinality constraint. The following variations should all IMHO be 
possible:

{code}
jcas.select(Token.class).coveredBy(sentence).single()
jcas.select(Token.class).coveredBy(10, 20).singleOrNull()
jcas.select(Token.class).at(10,20).get()
jcas.select(Token.class).between(firstName, lastName).get()
{code}

or abstractly

{noformat}
CONTAINER.select(TYPE-CONSTRAINT).LOCATION-CONSTRAINT(args)[.CARDINALITY-CONSTRAINT()]
{noformat}
