Retrieves features stored in an FME Feature Store (FFS) file and outputs them into the workspace.
FME Feature Store files can be created with the Recorder transformer, or with the FME Feature Store writer. See the FME Feature Store Reader/Writer chapter in the FME Readers and Writers manual for more details on this format.
Features in an FFS file are stored along with a feature type string. The saved feature type will depend on the way the features were written to the FFS file.
- If the features originate from a Recorder, this string will be __RECORDED__, unless a Feature Type Attribute was specified in that transformer.
- If the features were created by the FFS writer, the string will be the name of the destination feature type to which the features were routed.
- Yes: The player will execute after all reader features have been processed.
- No: The feature is created immediately before the first reader feature is processed.
