Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENNLP-494) Merging results from several name-finders
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 15:41:27 GMT


Joern Kottmann commented on OPENNLP-494:

As said on the user list we should make a proxy TokenNameFinder which calls a set of name
finder and outputs the merged names. Such a class will be useful for many users, because names
usually must be merged to be used.

> Made some small changes to the TokenNameFinderEvaluator class which hopefully allow merging
of results from several name-finders. It just does that by calling the find method of all
supplied name-finders. The only break is the fact that Java does not allow varargs anywhere
but at the end of the argument list so i could not use "TokenNameFinder... namefinders" as
the first parameter in the constructor - i had to pass an array instead. I think it's worth
reversing the order of arguments  but that is a break too...
