Subject RE: Issues changing term consumer

Hi Tom,

That is odd.  An mvn -U compile brings it down from sourceforge and unpacks it for me.  But
oddly enough (and I hadn't previously noticed) I don't have the example/ directory and that
is most likely a bug.  Apparently some of the unpacking config is bad in our latest pom.

Just to make certain, you are downloading the 4.0 released code or checking out 4.0.1 trunk?
Just to get things working, you can manually install the dictionary.  On the ctakes.apache.org
downloads page there is a button for "UMLS Dictionary" "Fast Version".  Click that and it
should download a sno_rx_16ab.zip file.  You will need to unzip that in the resources/org/apache/../fast/
directory.  It includes the .xml configuration file and the dictionary script and property

I'm sorry that this is broken.  I will have to debug and get a fix in for 4.0.1 - would you
mind creating a jira for the problem?   If not I can create one and paste your emails.

Hi Sean - 

I'm not seeing it. The only folder there is 'example' which contains a folder 'bsv' that has
some bar-separated text files and xml. I tried a fresh install, even deleting my eclipse installation
and starting from scratch.

Hi Tom,

After you perform a mvn compile there should be a copy of that file in the resources/ directory
under org/apache/ctakes/dictionary/lookup/fast/

Let me  know if you don't  see it after performing a mvn compile as that would indicate a

Subject: Issues changing term consumer

I'm having trouble changing the DefaultTermConsumer to my preferred SemanticCleanupTermConsumer.

I followed the Dev install in Eclipse for cTAKES 4.0.

I'm referencing the cTAKES 4.0 Component Use Guide>Fast Dictionary Lookup>Most Precise
Terms Persistence, and I understand that I have to edit sno_rx_16ab.xml.

My issue is that as far as I can tell cTAKES is pulling that file from a JAR now rather than
from a separate file. The jar seems to be:
ctakes-dictionary-lookup-fast>Maven Dependencies>ctakes-resources-sno_rx-4.0.0.jar which
contains org.apache.ctakes.dictionary.lookup.fast>sno_rx_16ab.xml.

Is the intention that I modify the contents of that jar? Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance -
