javaDataPipeline Coderun #

The main class used to interface with the FAIR DataPipeline in Java, is the Coderun class.

Users should initialise the Coderun instance using a try-with-resources block or ensure that .close() is explicitly called upon finishing.

The Coderun constructor needs a Path to the config.yaml, a Path to the, and the registry authentication token.

The user then would access the input data product(s) using coderun.get_dp_for_read(dataproduct_name) and output data product(s) using coderun.get_dp_for_write(dataproduct_name, extension).

From the resulting data_product we can then access either one unnamed object_component: Object_component_read oc = dp.getComponent() or any number of named object_components: Object_component_read oc1 = dp.getComponent('ComponentName').

Data in FAIR Data Pipeline internal formats (HDF5, TOML) is written to (or read from) named Object_components, while other file formats (such as CSV) are written to (or read from) just 1 unnamed Object_component.

Here is an example of a Coderun writing a CSV file to one unnamed Object_component:

    try (var coderun = new Coderun(configPath, scriptPath, token)) {
      Data_product_write dp = coderun.get_dp_for_write(dataProduct, "csv");
      Object_component_write oc = dp.getComponent();
      Path p = oc.writeLink();

And for reading:

    try (var coderun = new Coderun(configPath, scriptPath, token)) {
      Data_product_read dp = coderun.get_dp_for_read(dataProduct);
      Object_component_read oc = dp.getComponent();
      Path p = oc.readLink();

Here is an example of a coderun writing Samples to one named Object_component:

    try (var coderun = new Coderun(configPath, scriptPath)) {
       ImmutableSamples samples = ImmutableSamples.builder().addSamples(1, 2, 3).rng(rng).build();
       String dataProduct = "animal/dodo";
       String component1 = "example-samples-dodo1";
       Data_product_write dp = coderun.get_dp_for_write(dataProduct, "toml");
       Object_component_write oc1 = dp.getComponent(component1);
