[bioontology-support] Statistics within NCBO Annotator results ?

Hi Ray, all, 

Thanks for your response. Somehow I missed it until today ;)


I understand. 

Having that information is not crucial but it’s easier when playing with the
service to figure out the results

But having the whole API uniform is also important.


Will not considering the “metadata” of an \annotator call a little bit like
a \search call


Which returns :


page": 1,

"pageCount": 44,

"prevPage": null,

"nextPage": 2,



Which are some kind of metadata about the \search call.


This will allow you in the same time: 

-          Paginate \annotator service results. (what’s happening currently
if the number of annotations is too big for a single page?)

-          Include some additional metadata for all services using the same
technique for all services. Somehow, this would be relevant to have the
numbers of results of a \search call, no?

It seemed to us when we created the API revision that this information was
either known to the called (parameters passed) or easily extracted from the
results (statistics). What is the use case for providing this information?
At this point it would be difficult in many calls (we want the annotator API
to work like the rest of the system) because they only return a single
object. Adding metadata would require some sort of wrapping object.

Hi all, 


Is there any chance to re-implement in new Annotator the “statistics” for
every Annotator call.

-          an ID for the result, usefull

-          the number of annotations of which types (direct, hierarchy,

-          reminder of parameters used for this call


Old Annotator used to return an annotatorResultBean that contained all of



Let me know.
