Could you have the full stack trace?

1) You'll need to download the umls resources [1]
Resources are required to run most of cTAKES. They are available for download from SourceForge: ctakes-resources-3.1.0.zip
Please download, unzip and add/merge the contents to the existing resources directory. Follow
the User or Developer Install Guide to direct you through the installation process.
2) Pass in your umls login info

Subject: UMLS Terminology Authorization

I am a new user to this cTakes user group. I am new to using cTakes and lso UIMA. I want to
use cTakes to identify semantics in the medical record. I have certain clarifications. I am
able to load the AggregatePlaintextProcessor.xml and find semantic categories for disease,
symptoms, drugs. I also want to use AggregatePlaintextUMLSProcessor.xml for finding the entities.
But when I load the xml file I get this following exception:
I also found that for using UMLS Terminology I need to register and get authentication for
using the services. I want to know if the error is caused by this. Did I miss something here
? Also I am very much interested in contributing for documentation for cTakes. Can I please
get some help on this.
