Questions regarding GATE
BABAUD Alexandre <alexandre.babaud@...>
I would like to ask you some questions regarding the utilization of GATE:
· What is the best practice about the order of use of the modules load in an application?
· What are the main advantages of using applications within an application? (maybe you have some examples to show me?)
· When I want to annotate a word manually I can annotate all the occurrences of this word in the text right? But what if I want the software to remember the annotation for another document for instance? Is there a way for GATE to automatically create rules?
· After annotating some words manually on a text I would like to be able to save the changes so that when I reload the application or if I restart it, the annotations are still there. How can I do that please?
· Is it possible to collaborate with someone else and thus work on the same application at the same time without having to synchronize our work every hours?
I hope you will be able to answer my questions. If not maybe you can give me a link to a complete doc about those?
Anyway thank you very much for your time and I am looking forward for hearing from you

Most of your questions could be answered by following the materials in the first module of the training course - you can find these materials online at
The order of modules in an application is important because a module may require the results of the output of a previous module - they are run in sequence.
Using an application within an application is just for convenience - for example, one might want to run one application for pre-processing, store the annotations in one set, then perform more operations in another set - see for example some of the applications in the module “Advanced Information Extraction”.
Saving a document with the annotations you manually added is dealt with in the first module (also in the User guide (see https://gate.ac.uk/sale/tao/
If you want GATE to make use of the manual annotations you added, you need to use the Machine Learning tools (see the module on Machine Learning).
