Subject [ANNOUNCE] UIMA-AS (Asynchronous Scaleout) add-on for UIMA, version 2.2.2-incubating, released
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2008 17:48:25 GMT
The Apache UIMA team is pleased to announce the first release of the UIMA-AS
add-on for UIMA.  (The release number is 2.2.2-incubating to correspond with the
base UIMA level).

UIMA-AS adds a highly flexible, robust, and easy to use scaleout capability to
the core UIMA framework; it can be considered to be a next-generation
replacement for the original CPM (Collection Processing Management) scaleout
that is part of the core UIMA framework.

Now you can selectively scale up (to take advantage of multiple cores) or scale
out (over local and/or wide area networks) just those analytics that need the
scaling, thus allowing optimization of computing resources.  UIMA-AS has been
successfully used on multiple projects, and scaled out to 100's of cores, with
no limit in sight.

It makes use of JMS (Java Messaging Services) and uses Apache ActiveMQ to
support messaging between components.  Already written UIMA Components can take
advantage of UIMA-AS scaleout with no code or component descriptor changes.

There is a short writeup that describes more details about the new capabilities
and how to get started using it, on the UIMA website:

UIMA is a component framework supporting integration and deployment of
components for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio, and
video; the main web-site is here: http://incubator.apache.org/uima/index.html

Thank you for your interest in Apache UIMA-AS!  We look forward to hearing about
your experience in using this new capability.

Apache UIMA is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF). Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects
until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications,
and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with
other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily
a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does
indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
