Subject Re: Accessing the External Resource from the UimaContext without Using XML descriptor [EXTERNAL]
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2019 15:46:36 GMT
Thank Sean,

But it seems it is just fine for getting parameters, not external resources,
please see this file:

It has several externalResourceDependency that need to be run on
externalResource. How can I do it on the pipelinebiler? Do you any

>From Tutorial.ex6 from example UIMA:

"When the Analysis Engine is initialized, it creates a single instance of
StringMapResource_impl and loads it with the contents of the data file.
This means that the framework calls the instance's load method, passing it
an instance of DataResource, from which you can obtain a stream or URI/URL
of the external resource that was declared in the external resource..."

How can do the same for Resource Dependencies in

With Best Wishes,
