Detailed Description

An AccumulatorAlgorithm is a special class of streaming algorithm that behaves in the following way:

  • during most of the processing, it just consumes whatever comes in on its defined input (unique), and use that to maintain an internal state
  • when the end of the stream is reached, it computes a resulting value and outputs it on its defined source(s).

By subclassing the AccumulatorAlgorithm class, you get all the buffering and data management done for you. In exchange, you just need to implement 2 methods:

  • void consume(); which will be called during the processing. When called, you can safely assume that the data has already been acquired on your defined input sink
  • void finalProduce(); which will be called at the end of the stream, when all the tokens will have been fed to the consume() method. You will have to explicitly push your result

You will also need to declare your input sink and output source using the specialized declareInputStream and declareOutputResult methods, instead of the standard declareInput and declareOutput ones.

As an example, please refer to the source code of the TCToTotal algorithm.

WARNING: declaring multiple input streams will result in undefined behavior. Multiple output results are fine, though.

WARNING: if you overload the reset() method, do not forget to call the base class implementation in it.

◆ finalProduce()

◆ process()

AlgorithmStatus process ( )

Implements Algorithm.

◆ reset()

void reset ( )

This function will be called when doing batch computations between each file that is processed. That is, if your algorithm is some sort of state machine, it allows you to reset it to its original state to process another file without having to delete and reinstantiate it. This function should not be called directly. Use resetNetwork instead to reset a network of connected Algorithms.

Reimplemented from Algorithm.
