Subject Re: Is is possible to pass cas view to the process method of an annotator?
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2012 19:20:58 GMT
Hello Himanshu,

yes, no and maybe.

Yes: you can use "Sofa mapping". You should find corresponding configuration possibilities
on aggregate analysis engines and in the CPEs.

In uimaFIT you'd want to look at the AggregateBuilder:


No: a Sofa mapping only maps a particular named view to the default view of an AE, it cannot
pass one view after the other to an AE.

Maybe: if you don't mind, you should be able to have your process three times in an aggregate
every time you map another view to its default view.
