Hi Pavan,
you may want to plug UIMA as a particular UpdateRequestProcessor [1] while
indexing data (I am working on such a use case). This way you could extract
entities and add them either as dynamicFields or pre defined (fixed) fields.

in UIMA you have some components that may be useful (DictionaryAnnotator,
ConceptMapper, Tagger, RegExAnnotator [2] ) for the above cases, however, as
Michael underlined, you have to consider the effort needed to understand,
use and eventually customize such components. UIMA is well suited for large
scale collections of data and let you work on a flexible and customizable
analysis pipeline that may change and be enriched in the future, but you
have to evaluate well if you deserve it.

the OpenCalais service is wrapped as a UIMA analysis engine and may be
called inside a UIMA pipeline together with other components (see above) or
services (i.e.: the UIMA wrapped Alchemy API service [3] ).
That said, this makes sense only if you are strongly focused on searching
over text and its extracted entities.
My 2 cents,
