Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-1887) Should be possible to open a CAS from a non Cas Editor project with the CAS Editor
Date Wed, 29 Sep 2010 14:37:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1887?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12916161#action_12916161

Jörn Kottmann commented on UIMA-1887:

Where would you place the UI to edit the styling ?

In the current version its done in a property page on a the Cas Editor project.
The Cas Viewer used a view for this.
Another option would be to have an editor for the style file which contains the
styling information for a certain type system.

Having a view might be the most useable option. Changes to the styling would then
be synchronized with all open editors which depend on the same type system and styling.
For example if the color for an org.apache.uima.Person annotation is changed in this
view all editors are updated to show this annotation in the new color.

>             Project: UIMA

>          Components: Eclipse plugins
>            Reporter: Jörn Kottmann
> It should be possible to open a  CAS files which are inside an eclipse java project (and
not an eclipse CAS Editor project) with the CAS Editor.
> After a short discussion with Marshall (see comments below) the issue is changed and
now includes the
> creation of an eclipse uima development plugin which will host the extension to the Cas
> Until this new plugin is mature is will be located in the sandbox and named uimaj-ep-dev.
> In this proposed solution the Development Plugin extends the CAS Editor with a Document
Provider which can load a type system and styling information from a non Cas Editor project.
The Development Plugin can assume that the type system file is
> placed in a certain location, for example at the top level of the project folder and
is named TypeSystem.xml.
> Additionally the Development Plugin should offer a file dialog to specify the type system
in case it cannot be found
> or is not compatible with the CAS the user wants to open.
> The Development Plugin also provides a new view to edit the styling of the annotations.
> The goal of this issue is to quickly create an initial solution which can then be refined

> by input from users and other uima developers.
