Service Oriented Computing is a potential enabler for popular applications of Named Entity Recognition and Information Extraction. In this demo we show an example of such an application and discuss how Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) makes the application fully flexible and easily extensible. The application brings SOA close to the end-user and gives possibilities hardly possible with other approaches.
