Subject Re: "Standard" UIMA typesystem
Date Sun, 11 Sep 2016 13:48:31 GMT
back to the original topic:

Another option: provide an abstract minimal typesystem that is extended
by the different typesystems of the component repositories.

Pro: If specific features are not required, no mapping needs to be added.

Con: Problems if the repo already uses a central supertype.
