Did you download the source and import into eclipse, or did you check out 3.1.1 from SVN.
If you checked it out from SVN, did you check it out from trunk, or from the tag for 3.1.1.

Subject: Re: Lucene for UMLS2014

   I am using ctakes 3.1.1 in eclipse and I have added my customizations to
the project, but now I want to update it to 3.2 so that I can use
   Is there any way to update the whole ctakes project to 3.2 without my
customizations getting removed?

  It would be a great help.

Thank you,
