Subject Re: Asking help for always unsuccessful AE load

This problem is coming from the LvgAnnotator. The issue is with the
lvg.properties file. The annotation engine is trying to find its
lvg.properties file in the classpath. This file is part of the cTAKES
resources bundle, so should be installed under
$CTAKES_HOME/resources/org/apache/ctakes/lvg/data/config. Unfortunately
this file also exists inside the jar file ctakes-lvg-res-3.2.0.jar as well.
So if you have that jar file on your classpath and it comes before the
CTAKES_HOME/resources/... then you'll get this error. In my case the
ctakes-lvg-res-3.2.0.jar file was being pulled into my project by Maven.

My stack trace looked like this:

 java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI is not hierarchical
at java.io.File.<init>(File.java:418)

and the URI it was using for the file was:


I fixed it by making sure that the cTAKES resources were in the classpath
before the dependent jar files (I use IntelliJ for development).

Hope that helps others when they search the archives since this issue seems
to come up quite a bit.
