A wrapper class for wrapping a NOX solver.

The LOCASolver::Wrapper class provides a wrapper for NOX solvers to change the group data returned by getSolutionGroup() and getPreviousSolutionGroup() so that status tests can operate correctly. LOCA continuation and bifurcation algorithms are implemented by extended groups which augment the nonlinear equations defining equilibrium solutions with appropriate continuation/bifurcation equations. Therefore the groups returned by getSolutionGroup() and getPreviousSolutionGroup() will be groups corresponding to the continuation/bifurcation equations, not the underlying group. Status tests that are designed to use concrete data from the original underlying group (e.g., NOX::StatusTest::NormWRMS) will then fail (usually via a segmentation fault or raised exception) when applied to the extended continuation or bifurcation groups.

This solver wrapper class fixes this problem by reimplementing the solution group accessor methods to return the underlying groups of the solution groups (via LOCA::Extended::MultiAbstractGroup::getUnderlyingGroup()) if they are extended groups (derived from LOCA::Extended::MultiAbstractGroup). If the groups are not extended groups, the original solution groups are returned. All other NOX::Solver::Generic methods are passed to the wrapped solver.

The LOCA::StatusTest::Wrapper class uses this wrapper class to wrap the solver supplied via the checkStatus method which is then forwarded to the original status test. When used properly, the group "seen" by the status test is of the appropriate type for the status test.
