uimaFIT: managing component configurations

so far we were using PEARs to manage different configurations of
components, e.g. having a CountryMapper, CityMapper, PersonMapper, etc.,
all based on ConceptMapper but with different settings/models.
How would I do that in uimaFIT? Basically I would like to create
components that just override the default values for parameters/resources.
In some cases, parameters are additionally overridden at the pipeline
level (CPE/uimaFIT), e.g. when using a database CasConsumer where we
would have several base configurations (e.g. annotation to DB column
mappings), but then override the DB connection settings in the pipeline.
Having the full configuration at the pipeline level makes it much more
difficult to manage configurations, so I would like to be able to point
to a given component and automatically get the correct default settings.
