Subject RE: setting up LVG
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 20:28:36 GMT
Hi Leonard,
We have not tried 2012 yet.  But yes, in 2.5, you can certainly drop the data files into resources\lvgresources\data\hsqlbd.
Just be aware of a potential version conflict with the 2012 lvg hsqldb files- If you run into
those issues, feel free to open a Jira and we'll take a look at it for the 3.x releases.

Thanks Pie,

I am using cTAKES 2.5.

I am thinking that I could just replace the HSQLDB in the cTAKES resources\lvgresources\data\hsqlbd
 directory and leave everything else in cTAKES unchanged...Do you think this will work or
do I have to add the rest of LVG 2012 for things to work properly?

Hi Leonard,
Which version of cTAKES were you using?

1.     One would replace the directory <cTAKES_HOME>ctakes-lvg/src/main/resources/lvgresources/lvg/data/HSqlDb
with data/HSqlDb from your extracted download from the NIH Lexical Tools website (
Replacing the entire directory is appropriate.
2.     In the future, you can upgrade to later versions of LVG by editing the <cTAKES_HOME>ctakes-lvg/src/main/resources/lvgresources/lvg/data/config/
file, replacing "lvg2008" with the name of the new release.
3.     However, If I recall correctly LVG actually includes hsqldb class files inside their
jar.  So there may be potential version conflicts of hsqldb with the current dictionary lookup
modules.  We have not upgraded to lvg2012 yet, but feel free to open a Jira item if you encounter
any issues.

Hi List,

I am a bit confused about how to set up the LVG for cTAKES.

I want to use the 2012 version. I have the data file and the script file.

I am confused about how to run the script to create the HsQL DB for the 2012 data.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
