Class CTAKESParser

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, Parser

    public class CTAKESParser
    extends ParserDecorator
    CTAKESParser decorates a Parser and leverages on CTAKESContentHandler to extract biomedical information from clinical text using Apache cTAKES.

    It is normally called by supplying an instance to AutoDetectParser, such as: AutoDetectParser parser = new AutoDetectParser(new CTAKESParser());

    It can also be used by giving a Tika Config file similar to:

    Because this is a Parser Decorator, and not a normal Parser in it's own right, it isn't normally selected via the Parser Service Loader.
