I've got an index!!!!
Yes, mixing some code from the JENA lucas (I kept it in a dust corner
of my harddisk :) ), some from DK and some mine, i produce an index.
If we want to start a Lucene indexer that's not only a proof of
concept but something very useful, it should be
The "problem", that's the UIMA's power,  is that everyone has it's own
type system.
To produce a lucene document one extract information from some
features, applying the right analyzer. In my case I use maybe only 10%
of the annotation produced by the analysis pipeline to produce a
single lucene doc.
So we need a very highly configurable component, able to map only
certain declared features and applying the right analyzer and so on.
Mny ways are possible:
-completly programmatic: the indexer is abstract and should be
extended to implement the right mapping for a specialized typeSytem
and pipeline
-configurable: mapping rules are defined in a descriptor file; the
JENA component followed this way
-mix of the two: some mapping is configured, other are implemented

My 2€cents.
