Subject Re: Injecting nested resources using UIMA fit
Date Sat, 23 May 2015 20:45:37 GMT
Thank you, Richard. The reason I use bindExternalResource is because I have a light DSL layer
on top where everything get’s wired together from different aggregate modules. This way
the modules don’t need to be that tightly coupled up front but I just do the binding generically
right before the execution. The example doesn’t show this.

The reason we are still using UIMA 2.6 is just because we haven’t had the time to test 2.7
yet. I upgraded my own branch now so I intend to start testing it and we will likely move
to 2.7 because we could among other things benefit from the new compact binary format.
