Subject Re: compatibility issues of uimacpp vs. uimaj using uima-as
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 20:10:39 GMT
So the only difference in your scenario is to use deployAsyncService?
Both use the same deployCppService executable. The only functional
difference could be the environment picked up from specified

Since yours has name="LD_LIBRARY_PATH">${lib.dir}, I also tried with a
Linux build, but had no problem there either.

Just to be clear, you are seeing the problem with the minimal
DaveDetector scenario? If so, using fairly recent SVN code for both
uimaj and uimacpp? There were some changes recently dealing with
quiesce and shutdown of deployCppService, but no changes in XMI CAS
serialization on either side for some months.

The only other thing I can think to suggest is putting an XMI dump in
the uimacpp annotator service on entry and before it returns the CAS
to confirm that the service inputs and outputs are what you expect.
