Best Practices for Apache cTAKES
Use FileLocator#getAsStream rather than accessing resources as a File:
- for consistency within cTAKES
- so that files within a jar can be accessed
If the change isn't related to an existing cTAKES JIRA item, create one so the release notes will automatically be updated.
Mention the JIRA item, CTAKES-### in the commit message, so the JIRA item will be updated automatically with a copy of the commit comment and the revision number.
Just as with code comments, why is more important than what.
