Hi Vijay, thank you for your time.

Your documentation was quite good. I had no problem setting up ytex with
UMLS running on my local mysql server. Where I ran into problems was
understanding how to launch the web service (also, is there anyway to run
this in a RESTful mode? Btw, the informatics.yale links returns 502). After
I did get it launched, and the confusion was probably all my fault, the
concepts available to the similarity fields seemed very sparse; I just
started typing randomly, hematochezia, choledocholithiasis, etc, and
nothing would come up. The best I got was gallbladder function test, which,
if Im understanding it right, would be an alkphos, but alkaline phosphatase
didnt come up, which led to me to believe they were smaller sets of the the
snomed, mesh, etc compilations (as I checked the UMLS db and these concepts
are there).

I think I got that execution command from the code.google, which is
probably why it was stale. I did not see the ytex semantic similarity guide
under the ctakes components part (sorry, thanks for pointing me there, ill
get to work on reading it).

So bottom line: are the ones that shipped watered down versions? And if
not, why are my concepts coming up short? If you give me a hint at where to
check Ill investigate.
