Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2470) Donation of uimaFIT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2470?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453086#comment-13453086

Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-2470:

A code drop package has been prepared at


We are now waiting for an OK from the UIMA team regarding the contribution package format.
If the format of the package is accepted by the UIMA team, we'll create the corresponding
paperwork, otherwise we will create a new package respecting the feedback form the UIMA team.

Since the CLA and SGA documents need to include a hash to clearly identify the code drop package
and since multiple parties are involved in the process, we believe this is the logistically
most viable procedure.

> 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.
