DUCC- Agent1 is on Physical and Agent2 is on virtual=Slow the job process timing


Is there any problem if one Agent node is on Physical(Master) and one 
agent node is on virtual?

I am running a job which is having avg processing timing of 20 min when 
I have configured a single machine DUCC (physical machine)as well as 
when both nodes were on physical machine only.

When I have shifted my one agent node to virtual machine avg processing 
timing of Job was increased to 1 Hour. Here I noticed that my job driver 
was also running only on virtual machine's agent node.

Can we run job driver to specific agent node so that I will be able to 
test any other Case Scenario? Because I also tried to run my job's 
process on agent node of physical machine but it didn't reflect the 
processing time much.

Thanks in advanced.

[ANNOUNCE] HeidelTime 1.8: cross-domain temporal tagger for 11 languages

Dear list members,

We are happy to announce the release of version 1.8 of our multilingual, 
cross-domain, and easy-to-extend temporal tagger HeidelTime. [1]

In the context of the new version, Croatian resources were added - 
developed and kindly provided by Luka Shukan et al. (University of 
Zagreb). [2] Furthermore, the Italian resources were significantly 
improved in the context of the EVALITA-2014 EVENTI task. [3] Finally, we 
have made some processing speed and stability improvements affecting the 
UIMA kit and standalone versions.

In the meanwhile, 11 languages are supported (ordered alphabetically):
Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, 
Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

In addition, HeidelTime distinguishes between news-style documents and 
narrative-style documents (e.g., Wikipedia articles) in all languages. 
In addition, English colloquial (e.g., Tweets and SMS) and scientific 
articles (e.g., clinical trails) are supported.

HeidelTime is available at Google Code [1] as a UIMA component and as a 
Java standalone version. If you want to briefly test it, there is also 
an online demo. [4]

In addition to HeidelTime itself, the UIMA HeidelTime kit contains 
several collection readers and CAS consumers (mainly for processing 
temporally annotated corpora) as well as analysis engines wrapping 
several part-of-speech taggers to perform linguistic preprocessing in 
all supported languages.

ApacheCon 2015 (April) UIMA Track

We are planning a UIMA Track at the next ApacheCon conference (being held in
Austin Texas, April 13-17th, 2015).

Topics / areas where talks are solicited include:

   - UIMA itself (including its subprojects), new features, directions, etc.,
which could be of interest to people using UIMA.
   - Interesting Applications built using UIMA, including how UIMA is of
benefit, of interest to people exploring UIMA and its uses
   - Demos of UIMA tooling, to appeal to users who want to become more effective
in their unstructured analysis work
   - Connections with other Apache projects - what they are and how they're
using UIMA in their analytics
   - Experiences with UIMA scaleout - to share with others who are scaling out
UIMA pipelines

The official call for papers is here:
Please consider submitting talks; the deadline is February 1st.  

Questions? Please email dev@...

uima-as-activemq problematic dependency on activemq-all


While the download instructions of ActiveMq[0] suggest including activemq-all in
your pom.xml, this is actually a bad idea. See the discussion here on ticket
AMQ-5009 [1]. The .jar is built using the Maven shade plugin, which directly
dumps libraries in the classpath, without allowing usage of the Maven <exclude>

If a project pulls in activemq-all, it now *has* to use the implementations of
all its libraries compiled into the jar, and cannot depend on them directly.
This is clearly not a good idea, and will indeed cause problems — for example
with SLF4J. If I write an application that depends on SLF4J for logging, and
uima-as-scaleout, the transitively pulled in activemq-all will cause a classpath
conflict for the SLF4J library. This problem is recorded in UIMA-3633 [2], but
the proposed fix does not work (as of version uima-as-activemq 2.6.0.) Nor
does it seem to be the appropriate fix, since depending on the Maven-shaded jar
could cause problems not only with SLF4J.

A better solution would be to depend on the activemq components separately. My
current workaround in my application's pom.xml reads like this:

How to using C++ DLL in Java Version UIMA

    I tried to create a UIMA project using Java( with eclipse Luna), the problem is my algorithm is written in
I have no ideal how to using this DLL within Java version UIMA, is it necessary to re-write the algorithm
follow UIMA's rule?
Anyway, can you give any suggestion how to do this. A example on this will do great help!

Serializing Specific View to XMI


I'm dealing with a CAS with multiple views, namely a Gold View and a System
View. I've been using XmiCasSerializer to save CASes but now I would like
to save only the contents in the System View. The XmiCasSerializer seems to
save the whole CAS with all views. Is there an easy way of just saving a
single view to an xmi file?

Ruta additional extensions

I created new UIMA action using the languages extension
In file descriptor generated by ruta workbench I had to added to
configuration parameters in additiionalExtensions section. The extension is
working properly, however ruta workbench overwrites the file descriptor
sometimes and I loose that configuration.  Is there any way to configure
Ruta workbench to avoid overwriting the file descriptor?

Kind regards
