Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-1102) CAS Viewer submission
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2008 15:07:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1102?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12609947#action_12609947

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-1102:
--------------------------------------

Added to the sandbox under the node ...sandbox/trunk/CasViewerEclipsePlugin.

I changed the src directory to conform to the maven conventions, but haven't done a POM for
this yet to get maven building to work.

I discovered that the build path in Eclipse wasn't working, not sure why. The build path depends
on the uimaj-ep-runtime plugin. I got things to work by telling the uimaj-ep-plugin to "export"
the jars it included (such as uimaj-core, uimaj-tools, etc).

I also noticed that the new projects make use of other package names that belong to other
projects, such as org.apache.uima.tools.debug.util, and org.apache.uima.tools.preferences.
These package names don't already exist in the uimaj-tools project, but they might, since
these are fairly common names.

Perhaps we need some suggestions on how to handle cross-project package naming, to avoid future
problems. I don't think this gives rise (at the moment) to the OSGi "split-package" issue,
since only one bundle is implementing the particular package.


Next work is to add a POM & get this to build with Maven. Also, the MsWord docs need to
be convered to docbook.

> The CAS Viewer is a tool for exploring the contents of the CAS that contains types, feature
structures, feature values, and indices created when analysis engines are run over some input
text documents. It unlocks and visualizes the CAS content by providing the following information:

>  - Annotations with associated types  
>  - Indices that reside in the index repository  
>  -Annotated text document
> UIMA developers can take benefits of the visualization and navigation capabilities inside
the CAS content to debug and accelerate the development of their UIMA components.
> The CAS Viewer runs as an Eclipse's plug-in and provides a GUI for visualizing serialized
CAS saved as XMI (XML Metadata Interchange) format. It also provides APIs for other tools
to customize and extend its functionality and its user interface.
