This section discusses how to integrate KIM with GATE.

KIM can be a useful addition to the toolkit of an experienced GATE user. KIM provides the KIM Client group of processing resources (PRs). They are plug-ins enabling the GATE applications to use the KIM platform features. For example, KIM can be used to annotate a document in GATE.


Like all GATE plug-ins, the KIM PRs are initialized and configured through the GATE interface. Before using any KIM PR, the following requirements must be satisfied:

  • KIM must be running with default settings on a local computer or on a remote server accessible by RMI on port 1099:In this specific case, no other ports are supported.
  • The serverAddress PR property must be set to the server name or IP address, if a remote server is used.
For any GATE-specific tasks, please consult the GATE documentation.

Types of processing tasks.

  • KIM Client PR obtains semantic annotations from KIM for the document, processed by the GATE application.
  • KIM Client - Run Only Gazetteer runs a gazetteer, which uses the named entities in the KIM semantic repository as a dictionary.

For general information about gazetteers, please see this sample in the GATE documentation.
