How do I discuss questions about cTAKES with people that know more than I do?

In the past, cTAKES was discussed in phpBB forums. Apache mailing lists are now used instead. If you are not modifying cTAKES beyond just configuration then subscribe to the user's mailing list. You can also just look through or search all discussion in the Apache mailing lists. See the Mailing Lists page to find links to the archives.

It may be of use to search the old forums as many questions about past releases (2.5 and before) have been asked and answered there in the cTAKES User forum.

How do I report problems I see while using cTAKES?

Submit issues using JIRA. Anyone may read the issues. You must be a contributor to add or edit issues.

Why doesn't my UMLS term get indentified by the system but it exists in SNOMEDCT/RxNorm?

The Dictionary Lookup that you are using filters out terms that don't have tui codes registered in the resources/org/apache/ctakes/dictionary/lookup/LookupDesc_Db.xml file.
Edit that file and add "{TUI}" to the value list for "{semanticGroup}Tuis" property as below: For Example:

< property key="semanticGroupTuis" value="{TUIS}" />

within < lookupConsumer className="" >
