[Biococoa-dev] New Structure for BioCocoa

Hi all,

i want to start the discussion on the mailinglist, we allready  
started at the wwdc.
In my point of view the BioCocoa project needs to get a modular and  
flexible structure. The attached pdf shows my suggestion of the  
possible new structure.
The next thing we have to discuss is the implementation of the  
datastructures in the BCFoundation framework. Our wwdc-discussion  
lead to a new string based sequence structure.
I think we should spend quite some time to plan the future structure  
of BioCocoa and stop implementation until the new structure is  
decided. We all want a 1.0 version of the framework and there are at  
least two persons from the wwdc, who want to use BioCocoa in their  
projects, so we should go for it. :-) (i should teach professional  
motivation practices :-)).

The discussion is open .......

BTW: I allready startet the BCParser.framework mentioned in the  
attached document. I think of a very flexible highlevel parser  
framework with event driven parsers like NSXMLParser.
This allows easy implementation of various file formats for different  
datastructures. Not everybody is satisfied with a biococa sequence  
and wants to have his own structure, the parser api allows to parse  
the files into any datastructure, and of course also into our future  
BCFoundation structures. The api is based on the c++ boost-spirit  
parser apis and is developed as objective-c++ framework, without any  
dynamic linking dependancies. Just tell me what you think about it ....
