uimaFIT is now part of the Apache UIMA project and is tracked there.
uimaFIT provides Java annotations to describe UIMA components in code without the need for XML descriptors, which simplifies refactoring definitions. uimaFIT makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML descriptors by providing convenient factory methods. uimaFIT is type system agnostic and does not depend on (or provide) a type system.
uimaFIT an ideal library for testing UIMA components. It is useful in research environments in which programmatic instantiation of UIMA pipelines simplify experimentation. For example, when performing cross-validation across a number of experimental conditions, it is tedious to create XML descriptors for each run.
