public interface Reader extends IO
The Reader interface provides some common constants and methods for all io readers. The usage of a reader is quite simple:
 Reader reader = (Reader) IOFactory.newIO("..."); // change reader name
 reader.setFilename("..."); // or reader.setInputSource(is);
 Object model =;

The Reader has to guarantee that the object that is returned by read() can be casted to the object for that IO.isHandlerFor(Class) is true.
