The GATE family

GATE is a multi purpose system: “GATE has grown over the years to include a desktop client for developers, a workflow-based web application, a Java library, an architecture and a process.”


GATE is:
  • an IDE, GATE Developer4: an integrated development environment for language processing components bundled with a very widely used Information Extraction system and a comprehensive set of other plugins
  • a web app: GATE Teamware a collaborative annotation environment for factory-style semantic annotation projects built around a workflow engine and a heavily-optimised backend service infrastructure
  • a framework, GATE Embedded: an object library optimised for inclusion in diverse applications giving access to all the services used by GATE Developer and more
  • an architecture: a high-level organisational picture of how language processing software composition
  • a process for the creation of robust and maintainable services

Manuals

Installation notes

  • Downloads for the GATE are available through a source forge site
  • Download a gate installer (or click on the direct link in the official download page
  • Run the installer, e.g. under Linux, type: java -jar gate-7.1-build4485-installer.jar
  • Run it, e.g. find it in the start menu or find and launch the launcher script, e.g. under Linux ~/GATE_Developer_7.1/bin/gate.sh
