Subject RE: [VOTE] Release Apache cTAKES 3.2.1 (rc2)
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2014 16:20:08 GMT
Thanks for testing Tim.
I don't think AggregatePlaintextProcessor.xml (w/o UMLS) does much actually.   We can fix
the descriptor xml in the next patch irrespective [1].
I updated the documentation[2] to say 
- if you want something simple to test, try the SentencesAndTokensAggregate.xml in the meantime.
- default to AggregatePlaintextFastUMLSProcessor.xml 
- made UMLS 'Recommended' rather than 'Optional'.  Otherwise, you'll just have a dictionary
with 5 dummy terms.

Subject: Re: [VOTE] Release Apache cTAKES 3.2.1 (rc2)

I downloaded the src and bin and did the following (in xubuntu):

* Compiled src from command line using mvn compile
* Ran fast dictionary pipeline in src package (using mvn compile -P runCVD) -- required setting
umls user & password in dictionary descriptor
* Extracted resources into bin release and successfully ran runCVD.sh -- require setting umls
user & password in dictionary descriptor

There was one issue with the non-UMLS pipeline -- was missing a close bracket in the descriptor
xml. Added it back in and it worked fine. Is there a way to just patch that file w/o re-doing
the whole RC?

This is a call for a vote on releasing the following candidate (rc2) as Apache cTAKES 3.2.1.

The major changes include:

- New optional Temporal component (Time + Event Relationships models now available)

- Other bug fixes/enhancements from Jira

I manually downloaded the bin as well as resources and tried the CVD with the AggregatePlaintextFastUMLSProcessor.xml
and AggregatePlaintextUMLSProcessor.xml.
Would be great if folks have time to test/verify especially if you opened any of the Jira's
below to ensure the bugs have been fixed/integrated.
