Subject Re: Problem with WORDLISTs and WORDTABLEs where an entry starts with a shared substring of another entry
Date Mon, 28 Sep 2015 14:50:54 GMT

this problem is most likely caused by the whitespaces in the worldist.
Let me know if the following description does not help. I will then take
a closer look.

There is a comment in the context of UIMA-4453:
"The problem is caused by the combination of filtering settings in the
rule script and the entries in the table. The table lookup is not able
to see whitespaces since these are filtered by default. However, the
table contains entries with spaces. This can cause problems since the
table uses a trie structure for representing the column data. There is
no lookahead when automatically skipping spaces in the entries.
Therefore, the matches for entries fail that have chars that also occur
after whitespaces in other entries."

Could you remove the whitespace in the entries in order to test if this
is the source of the problem?
Resulting in:


If this is the reason, then there are several option to resolve this
problem. There is, for example, the configuration parameter
"dictRemoveWS". Set it to true, and the engine will automatically remove
the white spaces when loading the wordlist.

This sounds probably quite strange, but there are actual reasons for
this behavior.
