You can use uimaFIT factories for testing without using annotations and without introducing
a runtime dependency on uimaFIT.

You can use uimaFIT annotations and uimaFIT's context injection helper and still instantiate
or run components in any manner you like. Your code will not notice the presence of uimaFIT
at all. However, it becomes a runtime-dependency in this case. Since uimaFIT is licensed under
Apache 2.0, it should be compatible with UIMA/UIMA-AS at that point.

Does this address your concerns?
