Writers do not support overwriting metadata

Reported by: mlinkert Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Bio-Formats Version: OMERO-5.2.0
Keywords: export Cc: simon.blanchoud@…

See attached test case. In summary, writing some subset of planes using one MetadataRetrieve? then closing the writer, re-initializing with a different MetadataRetrieve?, and writing the remaining planes does not have the desired effect.

Re-attached original test code, which is old enough that it likely needs to be updated before being usable.

I think it's still up for debate whether this can reliably be resolved at the writer level; what we've been telling people to do for OME-XML/OME-TIFF is effectively this:


I'd be OK with this being closed if any combination of the following are done:

1) the post-processing solution in FileWriteSPW is more obviously documented as the correct way to do this
2) a limited set of post-setId metadata changes are allowed (e.g. SizeZ, SizeC, SizeT), possibly for OME-TIFF only
3) an example is written up detailing how we expect writing OME-TIFF at acquisition time to be done
