Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-1969) Add support for external resources hosted on an http server
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2011 14:26:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1969?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12997418#comment-12997418

Jörn Kottmann commented on UIMA-1969:

Sorry it took me a few days. I tested it now with UIMA-AS 2.3.1 RC4 and it can just load resources
from an http server out of the box.

To close this issue we need to update the documentation.

> Currently external resources for an Analysis Engine can only be loaded from the file
system. This is useful 
> for many use cases in which the resources are almost static and rarely change. In our
scenario the resources
> are updated frequently and hosted on a central server. The server could expose a file
system over the network
> via NFS or windows file sharing, but it seems to be more intuitiv and easier to just
distribute the resources via http.
> In order to do that the resource loading must be extended to also support resource which
are available via
> http. It seems that the current code for the file URLs can be easily extended to also
allow http resources. 
> According to the documentation it uses URL.openStream and forbids http URLs which would
be supported
> by that method.
