Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-2470:
--------------------------------------------------

Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately I was delayed with progress on this issue due to a
broken mainboard. 

I'd tend to agree with Joern that the changes should be done after adding the code to the
Apache repository. In that way the full transition history is available in the SVN. I can
provide the necessary patches then - it would a good opportunity to get into the habit too.

I also had a quick poke at what changing the package names from org.uimafit to org.apache.uima.uimafit
- it's quite a major change after which several test cases need to be revised. I'm also thinking
how some backwards-compatibility-layer could be introduced after such renaming, so that an
Apache uimaFIT can in some places make use of the current uimaFIT 1.4.0 annotations.

> uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components which can be used to
directly describe the UIMA components in Java code without the need for traditional UIMA XML
descriptors. This greatly simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a
configuration parameter name). uimaFIT also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without
using XML descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. This makes uimaFIT an
ideal library for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated
and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first. uimaFIT is very useful
in research environments in which programmatic/dynamic instantiation of UIMA pipelines can
simplify experimentation. For example, when performing 10-fold cross-validation across a number
of experimental conditions, it can be quite laborious to create a different set of descriptor
files for each run, or even a script which generates such descriptor files. uimaFIT is type
system agnostic and does not depend on (or provide) a specific type system.
