Subject Accessing the External Resource from the UimaContext without Using XML descriptor
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2019 13:23:32 GMT
I would like to use different cTAKES' components by using PipelineBuilder
(exactly the same in HelloWorldBuilderRunner.java).
But the problem is (As I understand it), PipelineBuilder does not read XML
descriptor of the component. I want to use the Dictionary Lookup component
(DictionaryLookupannotatorCSV.xml) in the following components:

         PipelineBuilder builder = new PipelineBuilder();
              .add( SimpleSegmentAnnotator.class )
              .add( SentenceDetector.class )
              .add( TokenizerAnnotator.class )
               // Java Class file of DictionaryLookupannotatorCSV.xml is:

But in the DictionaryLookupannotatorCSV.xml file, there are several
external resources that DictionaryLookupAnnotator needs to read them:

public void initialize(UimaContext aContext) {
  iv_context = aContext;
  FileResource fResrc = (FileResource)
   iv_lookupSpecSet = LookupParseUtilities.parseDescriptor(descFile,

So, what is the best way for having access to these
resources(LookupDescriptorFile, DictionaryFileResource, RxnormIndex and
OrangeBookIndex) in DictionaryLookupannotatorCSV.xml from the code?

Thanks a lot.
