             Summary: Donation of uimaFIT
                 Key: UIMA-2470
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2470
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Sandbox
            Reporter: Richard Eckart de Castilho


Donation of uimaFIT.

uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components which can be used to directly
describe the UIMA components in Java code without the need for traditional UIMA XML descriptors.
This greatly simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a configuration
parameter name). uimaFIT also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML
descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. This makes uimaFIT an ideal library
for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated and invoked without
requiring a descriptor file to be created first. uimaFIT is very useful in research environments
in which programmatic/dynamic instantiation of UIMA pipelines can simplify experimentation.
For example, when performing 10-fold cross-validation across a number of experimental conditions,
it can be quite laborious to create a different set of descriptor files for each run, or even
a script which generates such descriptor files. uimaFIT is type system agnostic and does not
depend on (or provide) a specific type system.
