Subject Re: Clustering, Collapsing

This sounds like you are actually looking for the project next door: Mahout.

UIMA really doesn't have a lot to do with clustering (although you could 
do some things). We do use UIMA for information extraction *before* 
clustering and sending it to Solr, though, as a sort of preprocessing to 
get relevant features from unstructured text. But it doesn't sound like 
that's what you're trying to do.
