A General Architecture for Connecting NLP Frameworks and Desktop Clients using Web Services


Abstract

Despite impressive advances in the development of generic NLP frameworks, content-specific text mining algorithms, and NLP services, little progress has been made in enhancing existing end-user clients with text analysis capabilities. To overcome this software engineering gap between desktop environments and text analysis frameworks, we developed an open service-oriented architecture, based on Semantic Web ontologies and W3C Web services, which makes it possible to easily integrate any NLP service into client applications.
