?It sounds like you might be trying to load these annotators on their own, but they both have
dependencies on other annotators. The best way to run them is by adding them to the AggregatedPlaintextUMLSProcessor
xml file -- if you are using eclipse with uima tooling you can use the component descriptor
editor, otherwise you can just manually edit the text file.

Subject: cannot load negation annotator

Hi guys,

I am new to cTake and would like to ask a maybe naive questions. I am using the current newest
version 3.2

I am trying to identify the disease of a documentation and exclude the negations. It seems
that the  desc/ctake_clinical_pipeline/desc/analysis_enginer/AggregatedPlaintestUMLSProcessor.xnl
does not annotate negation. Therefore I tried to use two other method and have difficulty
using both of them

First method:
I load NegationAnnotator.xml from desc/ctake_clinical_pipeline/desc/analysis_enginer/
I then run this annotator by click Run -> NegationAnnotator. However it gives me error

org.apach.unima.analysis_engine.AnalysisEngineProcessException: JCas type "org/apache.ctake.typesystem.type.textspan.Sentist"
used in Java code, but was not declared in the XML type descriptor.

Any idea on the error. Am I running the right command?

Second method:
I load NegationAnnotator.xml from desc/ctake_ne_contexts/desc
I then run Run-> NegationAnnotator.
It gives me the same error.

I also tried some other annotators. Quite many of them gave me the same error.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
