Thanks for you interest in Apache Stanbol. I will try to answer your questions

To link text with concepts defines within a Taxonomy Apache Stanbol
provides the TaxonomyLinking Engine. This Engine is still in
development and currently not part of the Stable launcher however you
can easily install it as described in step 4 below.

This Engine also requires that your SKOS thesaurus is imported to the
Apache Stanbol Entityhub. How to do this is explained in step 2 and 5.

The enhance documents part of your Web repository you will need to
send the text versions to the Stanbol Enhancer
(http://localhost:8080/engines) and process the results. See the
RESTful API documentation for details.

Please NOTE that the TaxonomyLinking Engine currently assumes that all
parsed text is in English. However multiple language support is planed
as a future feature.

To test Stanbol please follow the following steps:

1. checkout and build Stanbol (see [0] for details)
2. index you SKOS thesaurus by using the genericRDF indexer (see the
readme at [1])

3. use the Stable launcher (see [2])
4. install the TaxonomyLinkingEngine

 * go to http://localhost:8080/system/console/ (user=admin pwd=admin)
 * press the "install/update..." button
 * install the "org.apache.stanbol.enhancer.engine.taxonomy". This
bundle will be at
if you have successfully build Apache Stanbol.

5. install the bundle with you indexed Thesaurus

** This bundle will be in the
** The {indexing-root} is the folder you used for step 2
** the {id} depends on your configuration provided in step 2

6 configure an instance of the TaxonomyLinkingEngine to use your Thesaurus

** go to http://localhost:8080/system/console/configMgr
** search for "Apache Stanbol Enhancement Engine for Taxonomy linking"
and press the [+] button
** add the {id} (as configured in step 2) as ReferencedSite


If you have any further questions feel free to ask.
