<h2 id='Description'><img src="../images/redarrow.gif" />Description</h2>
<div class="section-content">
<p>uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components
which can be used to directly describe the UIMA components in Java code
without the need for traditional UIMA XML descriptors. This greatly
simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a
configuration parameter name). uimaFIT also makes it easy to instantiate
UIMA components without using XML descriptor files by providing
convenient factory methods. This makes uimaFIT an ideal library for
testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated
and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first.
uimaFIT is very useful in research environments in which
programmatic/dynamic instantiation of UIMA pipelines can simplify
experimentation. For example, when performing 10-fold cross-validation
across a number of experimental conditions, it can be quite laborious
to create a different set of descriptor files for each run, or even a
script which generates such descriptor files. uimaFIT is type system
agnostic and does not depend on (or provide) a specific type system
</p>
<p>
uimaFIT is contributed as a multi-module Maven project.
