[Biojava-l] How to use SuffixTree?

I was happy to see that there is a SuffixTree-class in biojava...but now I'm
just not sure how to use it.
I think I understood the concept of a suffix tree in general: it holds
references to all suffices of a given string, so that I can search for a pattern
that may or may not occur in that String very fast.

So shouldn't the SuffixTree-class provide methods like:
boolean doesOccur(String pattern)   or
int occursAt(String pattern)

I'd just like to know what I can actually do with a SuffixTree once I
created it.
Thank you very much for any help!
