The OpenNLP UIMA AEs don't depend on a specific type system, I believe 
they can just
be configured to work with the cTAKEs type system out of the box.

There is a jira for doing that with descriptors for the POSTagger, 
Sentence Detector and Chunker.

The Sentence Detector might need a bit more work to work with the new 
line modification you need for
cTAKEs, but I guess that can easily be done for the next OpenNLP release 
if there is a need.
