Subject Re: How to declare external resources using relative paths (for UIMA AS deployment)
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 15:00:56 GMT
Hello!
   Stupid mail was formatting the bold text with "*". There is no "*" in
paths. The bold text was there just to emphasize the paths.
I have read again the documentation regarding the "Declaring Resources and
Binding" from tutorials_and_user_guide.pdf (version 2.3.1). and at the page
31,
is stated:

"The first section of this XML declares an externalResource, the
UimaAcronymTableFile. With
this, the fileUrl element specifies the path to the data file. This can be
an absolute URL (e.g. one
that starts with file:/ or file:///, or file://my.host.org/), but that is
not recommended because it makes
installation of your component more difficult, as noted earlier. Better is
a relative URL, which will
be looked up within the classpath (and/or datapath), as used in this
example. In this case, the file
org/apache/uima/tutorial/ex6/uimaAcronyms.txt is located in
uimaj-examples.jar,
which is in the classpath"

    The interesting part is the one related with the relative path. In
order to use it, from my understanding, you have to pack the external
dependencies either in a different jar and add it to the classpath, either
add them into your project jar. The important thing is that those
dependencies should be in the classpath. I did this and and it worked.
  I hope that someone can confirm the above.
In my opinion, there should be a feature in the uima where you can define
the dependencies to external resources using the relative paths from where
you are executing the main script for starting the UIMA AS service.

  I look forward for your opinion and suggestions.
  Thank you,
  Florin
