Subject Re: UIMA Ruta on an ARM Linux Machine
Date Sun, 29 Oct 2017 18:14:53 GMT
I see.
A good way to achieve this is to use the ruta-maven-plugin (which requires that you use maven
for your project...). An introduction is given in the Ruta reference guide, here : https://uima.apache.org/d/ruta-current/tools.ruta.book.html#ugr.tools.ruta.maven
Then integrate the jcasgen-maven-plugin (see https://uima.apache.org/d/uimaj-2.6.0/tools.html#ugr.tools.jcasgen.maven_plugin)

The ruta-maven-plugin will create the typesystems for all DECLAREd types in your scripts (it
can also compile txt resources into twl).
jcasgen-maven-plugin will generate Java classes for all types found in the typesystems (including
those built by ruta-maven-plugin). You don’t need it if you don’t want to manipulate annotation
as classes from within your Java app.

I also use UimaFit to integrate the Ruta engine to my Java sources.

You can then do something like this to get your XMI files (not tested):

JCas jCas = JCasFactory.createJCas();
jCas.setDocumentText(« this is a text to be parsed »);
	AnalysisEngineFactory.createEngineDescription(RutaEngine.class, RutaEngine.PARAM_MAIN_SCRIPT,
« my.main.script »),
	AnalysisEngineFactory.createEngine(XMIWriter.class, XMIWriter.PARAM_OUTPUT, « /path/to/xmi/«

Hope this helps,

All you need is a JDK for the architecture you target, then compile UIMA and Ruta for that

Ruta would be to develop and test using Eclipes’ Ruta Workbench, and then run them on the
ARM machine.
