UIMA is the Unstructured Information Management Architecture. Its meant to be
used to analyze unstructured information, such as texts, and as a result of the analysis 
superimpose structured information on top of it, such as linguistic or semantic categories.

If you need a library to access ecore files, you should probably look at the Eclipse EMF
framework. While UIMA can store analysis results in XMI files, UIMA is not a library to
access and process XMI files in general. Likewise for XML and RDF.
