JCoRe MUC7 Collection Reader

Reader that converts MUC-7 (Message Understanding Conference) files to CAS objects

Descriptor Path:



The MUC7 Reader reads in the data from the Message Understanding Conference (MUC) 7 Corpus. However, be aware that this reader only accepts well formed XML and not the SGML files from the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC). There is a Python script in the scripts folder that converts a MUC7 SGML to an XML:
python muc7_SGML2XML.py FILE

Requirement 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 AE - 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/ but it can be further edited if so desired; see UIMA SDK User's Guide for further information.

1. Parameters

Parameter Name Parameter Type Mandatory Multivalued Description
InputDirectory String yes no Path to MUC7 files
