Multi-paradigm Information Management Index and Repository
This is the top level directory for the GATE Mímir source tree, containing the following modules which are built by the top-level POM:
mimir-core: the core Mímir Java library.
mimir-connector: Java library for sending documents to a remote Mímir server.
mimir-client: Java library for querying a remote Mímir index.
mimir-indexing-plugin: GATE plugin providing a PR that sends documents to Mímir for indexing.
plugins: Mímir plugins providing various Semantic Annotation Helper (SAH) implementations.
db-h2: generic SAH based on the H2 relational database (http://www.h2database.com/)
measurements: specialised SAH providing advanced support for Measurement annotations
sparql: SAH implementation that uses semantic queries against a SPARQL end-point to filter the results of standard Mímir queries.
The components of the Mímir web application are in the
and are built using Gradle and Grails 3.3:
mimir-web-ui: the GWT search user interface used in
mimir-web: a Grails (http://grails.org) plugin providing Mímir functionality for Grails-base web applications.
mimir-cloud: the Grails application used for the Mímir installs on http://GATECloud.net. This is a fully-fledged application, which extends the
mimir-webplugin with support for security. In most cases, if you need a simple way of deploying Mímir, you should be able to use this application as is. If you need to integrate with an existing infrastructure (e.g. some already-existing single-sign-on solution), then you may find it easier to create your own app that depends on the

How to build
Building Mímir is a two step process, you will require an installation of Maven but not Grails/Gradle as the web components come with their own wrapper:
mvn installin this directory to build all the Java components
webapp/mimir-cloudto build and start up the sample web application.
If you want to build a WAR for deployment to a Tomcat or similar web server
then change to the
webapp/mimir-cloud directory and run:
./grailsw run-command cache-mimir-plugins
./grailsw prod war
The resulting WAR file will be created in
