Subject Re: Using UIMA for structured data sources
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 21:39:13 GMT

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to build.  Your description is a little vague.
 Perhaps you could provide some use-cases?

I recommend that you read the UIMA docs and then ask any questions you still have.

Be aware the UIMA is not a search engine.  If all you want to do is index some documents,
then maybe all you need is Apache Lucene.  For the structured side, maybe you need a data
warehouse.  Or maybe you just want to index some of the CLOBs and VARCHARS into a search engine.
 It's hard to tell from your description.
