OpenNLP is a software maintained by the Apache Software Foundation. It is a toolkit for the processing of natural language text. It processes advanced tasks such as part-of-speech tagging or named entity extraction. The use with raw texts (eg Web pages) requires careful cleaning with text "boilerplating" tools (eg Boilerpipe) or reverse engineering softwares (eg Web-Harvest). An example of implementing OpenNLP will be presented.
