Apache 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). It also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. It is ideal for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first.
