Subject [jira] [Created] (UIMA-6263) CAS validation support
Date Mon, 07 Sep 2020 06:20:00 GMT
Richard Eckart de Castilho created UIMA-6263:

             Summary: CAS validation support
                 Key: UIMA-6263
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-6263
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: uimaFIT
            Reporter: Richard Eckart de Castilho
            Assignee: Richard Eckart de Castilho
             Fix For: 2.6.0uimaFIT, 3.2.0uimaFIT

A common task while testing UIMA components is (or at least should be) validating that the
annotations that have been created by some annotator or reader actually conform to the expectations
you have for your type system. E.g. stuff like annotations not ending before they start (which
is actually a general requirement for UIMA text-oriented annotations).

So it would be good if type systems should ship with a bunch of validator classes that some
central validator code could auto-discover. The validator code would then be called e.g. in
unit tests in order to check that the output of a component is valid with respect to the intentions
of the type system.
