Introduction to Clerezza-UIMA integration

UIMA is an OASIS standard that allows the definition of analysis pipelines to manage unstructured information and extract structures and semantics around given data.

The Clerezza-UIMA integration brings the power of UIMA inside Clerezza providing reuse of existing UIMA components, definition of new ones in a linked data oriented system.

A basic mechanism for mapping UIMA CAS (Common Analysis Structure) to an RDF graph has been defined together with the ability of storing such an object in one of the Clerezza supported triple stores.

Clerezza runs inside an OSGi environment while UIMA is not fully OSGi compliant as is, so this integration work takes care also of the OSGi adaption.
