#' Get NetworkSummary by Network UUID
#' 
#' This function retrieves the summary of the network identified by the supplied network UUID string.
#' 
#' @param ndexcon object of class NDExConnection link{ndex_connect}
#' @param networkId unique ID of the network
#' 
#' @return List of network metadata: ID, name, whether it is public, edge and node count; source and format of network
#' 
#' @section REST query:
#' GET: ndex_config$api$network$summary$get
#' @note Compatible to NDEx server version 1.3 and 2.0
#' 
#' @examples 
#' ## Establish a server connection
#' ndexcon = ndex_connect()
#' ## Find a network and get its UUID
#' networks = ndex_find_networks(ndexcon,"p53")
#' networkId = networks[1,"externalId"]
#' ## Get the network summary

#' Get complete network
#' 
#' Returns the specified network as CX. 
#' This is performed as a monolithic operation, so it is typically advisable for applications to first use the getNetworkSummary method to check the node and edge counts for a network before retrieving the network.
#' Uses getEdges (this procedure will return complete network with all elements)
#' Nodes use primary ID of the base term ('represents' element)
#' Edges use primary ID of the base term ('predicate', or 'p' element)
#' Mapping table for the nodes is retrieved ('alias' and 'related' terms) to facilitate conversions/data mapping
