Yeah, in C++ it is nice to be able to access entryAttributes as a
SWBuf word1Morphology =
But this interface doesn't translate well to other languages. I have
had to implement a different interface for my custom language binding
for Java-jni (used by SWORD C++ on Android) and CORBA (used by SWORDWeb).
The binding interface I usually implement is described in simple IDL
here and is a fairly concise set of methods that give access to most all
of functionality of the engine:
You'll notice the method for obtaining entry attributes:
StringList SWModule.getEntryAttribute(in string level1, in string
level2, in string level3, in boolean filtered);
This less exotic interface maps much easier to other languages, but
implies you know what attribute you'd like to obtain (discovery by
iteration is not supported, but really, what frontend does that anyway?)
So, in summary, maybe we should add this to swmodule.i
I intended to tackle that after my working on
