Detailed Description

Extendible interface for loading of WorkCells from files.

By default, the following formats are supported:

The Factory defines an extension point "rw.loaders.WorkCellLoader" that makes it possible to add loaders for other file formats than the ones above. Extensions take precedence over the default loaders.

The WorkCell loader is chosen based on a case-insensitive file extension name. So "scene.wc.xml" will be loaded by the same loader as "scene.WC.XML"

WorkCells are supposed to be loaded using the Factory::load function:

WorkCell::Ptr wc = WorkCellLoader::Factory::load("scene.wc.xml");
if (wc.isNull())
RW_TRHOW("WorkCell could not be loaded.");

Alternatively a WorkCell can be loaded in the less convenient way:

WorkCell::Ptr wc = loader.loadWorkCell("scene.wc.xml");
if (wc.isNull())
RW_TRHOW("WorkCell could not be loaded.");
