Subject Using PEAR in a application based on Uima framework
Date Mon, 15 Apr 2013 06:33:42 GMT
I am currently developing a Tomcat application that wraps around Uima to run 
text mining processes. 
I am confused over what PEAR can be used for and how it can be used in a Uima-
wrapped application.

The application is to be deployed as a installed web application at our 
client's location and it is meant to be more or less a black box to our 
client. That is, our client should not need to know about the intricracies of 
Uima or the various analysis engines to perform text mining processes.
Our application presents them a simple facade that thats in input from them, 
runs the input through an analysis pipeline (consisting of annotators, cas 
consumers, etc) and returns an analysed, annotated document to them.

But we also want our application to be easily extensible and changed, in case 
we have a better version of analysis engine, we want to deploy just the engine 
to the client without having to re-compile and re-deploy the whole 

Can we make use of PEAR to do the deployment?
If so, what about the types used in the analysis engines in the PEAR, how does 
the deployed application know about the new or modified types in the PEAR?
