Tools and usage

We will now discuss some of the most well-known tools and libraries in Java that are used in various NLP and text mining applications.

Mallet

Mallet is a Machine Learning toolkit for text written in Java, which comes with several natural language processing libraries, including those some for document classification, sequence tagging, and topic modeling, as well as various Machine Learning algorithms. It is open source, released under CPL. Mallet exposes an extensive API (see the following screenshots) to create and configure sequences of "pipes" for pre-processing, vectorizing, feature selection, and so on, as well as to extend implementations of classification and clustering algorithms, plus a host of other text analytics and ...
