Subject [jira] [Created] (UIMA-3253) TypeSystemDescription throws ClassCastException
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 10:32:51 GMT
alina created UIMA-3253:

             Summary: TypeSystemDescription throws ClassCastException
                 Key: UIMA-3253
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-3253
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: uimaFIT
            Reporter: alina

Hi all!

We have received a strange Exception from the Type system of uimafit maybe you can help us
to fix it.

1. First we loaded the type system from different xml-files like this:
typeSystemDescription = TypeSystemDescriptionFactory.createTypeSystemDescriptionFromPath(

2. Then we created JCAS document 
JCas jCas = JCasFactory.createJCas(typeSystemDescription);      

3. Then we loaded the pipeline through aggregator like this: 

AggregateBuilder builder = new AggregateBuilder();
        // create resource manager
        SimpleNamedResourceManager resourceManager = new SimpleNamedResourceManager();   
    resourceManager.setExtensionClassPath(Play.application().classloader(), "", true);
        // build pipeline

4. And then we wanted to iterate the annotations of the daugther type which was created in
one of the annotators:
Collection<Word> col = JCasUtil.select(jCas, Word.class);
(*) for (Word word: col){...}

=> In this place (* ) the system threw the ClassCastException, that Annotation.class cannot
be casted to Word.class.

Inside any annotator the same lines don't throw any exception, this happens in the main program

What could we do wrong?
The problem may lay in the resource loading, since we use ResourceManager which loads the
classes for the types from the PLAY (Web framework) Class loader. Maybe we have to set the
ResourceManager also for JCas? 
Maybe our problem is described in chapter 5.6.7 of the UIMA Tutorial but in this case we also
don't understand what to do.

We use IntelliJ IDEA and MacOS.
Thank you for your help.
