I extended the Cas Editor with some plugins to suit my annotation needs. 
Some of them are Open Source, like the OpenNLP integration or the 
connector to the Corpus Server.
Anyway to do an annotation project efficiently a web based tool like 
brat is better than the Cas Editor, but brat is not
easy to integrate with UIMA currently. For now we are doing it 
half-half, the first annotation work is done with the Cas Editor 
(layout, sentences,
tokens, named entities), and the more advanced tasks are done with brat 
(e.g. relations, coref, disambiguation).

For my next annotation project I will probably try to do the named 
entities also with brat, but currently its too slow compared tot he Cas 
Editor with
the OpenNLP support.
