Subject Re: New Name for UIMA Podling?
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2006 12:35:37 GMT
The name UIMA has built up some amount of name recognition in the 
community where it is being adopted, so there's some advantage to not 
changing it.  It also has an advantage of being rather short. 

For our project files currently on SourceForge, we used as a naming root 
"uimaj"  - the "j" being appended to indicate the "Java" version of the 
framework.  We also have a "C++" enablement layer, which is part of what 
we'll be bringing into the incubator.  These we currently manage as 2 
independent but coordinated projects, from a release standpoint.

Over time, we might see other implementations of the UIMA framework, in 
other languages (C# / .net for instance).

To start, my sense is to try and keep things simple, and have one 
project, under one name - but thinking ahead, it's nice if that can 
change when and if needed into some kind of a small hierarchy of related 
projects, with related names.
