Subject Re: uimaFIT: external resource bindings?
Date Tue, 29 Oct 2013 13:05:50 GMT
I got it to work with the following:

> 	ExternalResourceDescription myDict = createExternalResourceDescription(
> 		CompiledDictionaryResource_impl.class,
> 		"file:dictionary.dic");
> 	AnalysisEngineDescription sentimentMapper = createEngineDescription(

> 		ConceptMapperBM.PARAM_DICT_FILE, myDict,

> 		<lots of other parameters because too many are mandatory>
> 		);

Apparently no explicit binding is necessary...

annotation, uimaFIT cannot create 1 automatically. So you can create it manually using createDependencyAndBind(),
which performs steps 2 (using the createDependency() call) and 3 (using a bindResource() call).
Of course, you can also manually call createDependency() and bindResource() separately - which
I think you were asking for.

it only does 3, but not 2 - this approach only works if the AE you create the descriptor for
uses the @ExternalResource annotation to declare external resources.
