Subject Re: standardizing namespaces for the UIMA framework
Date Fri, 03 Nov 2006 07:15:28 GMT
I would think the org.uima namespace should be reserved for standardized 
UIMA interfaces, originating most likely from OASIS.  Then our 
implementation prefix would still be org.apache.  Other Apache projects 
that implement standards are handling this similarly.  For example, some 
of the interfaces that Xerces implements have a org.xml or org.w3c 
namespace; the implementation is still prefixed with org.apache.

Our interfaces are certainly good candidates for such a standardized 
interfaces, but I'd wait with renaming to a org.uima (or similar) 
namespace until such a proposal is forthcoming from OASIS.
