Java API Concepts

Topics in this Section

Eduction SDK provides a Java API that enables your application to create an extraction engine and perform entity extractions.
This section describes the concepts used to write Java applications with the Eduction SDK.
The Java SDK consists of a JAR file, and a DLL (Windows) or shared object (UNIX/Linux).
Java developers can use either the Eduction JNI, the class library, or both. The JNI provides functionality almost identical to that of the Eduction C API. The class library encapsulates related JNI methods, implements exception handling, and provides return values from method calls that simplify application programming.
