JCoRe IEXML Consumer

Consumer that generates stand-off IEXML files as used in the mantra project/challenge

Descriptor Path:



This consumer takes the annotations specified in Capabilities and outputs IEXML files for each document to a specified outputFile.

Requirements and Dependencies

The input and output of an AE is done via annotation objects. The classes corresponding to these objects are part of the JCoRe Type System.

Using the CC - Descriptor Configuration

In UIMA, each component is configured by a descriptor in XML. Such a preconfigured descriptor is available under src/main/resources/de/julielab/jcore/consumer/iexml/desc but it can be further edited if so desired; see UIMA SDK User's Guide for further information.
