Given a list of URLs pointing to LMF files, this webservice merges them into a single LMF file. It works for LMF files encoding the information in the same way, i.e. same labels, values and structure. This will work, for example, for merging different lexica learnt under PANACEA platform. If the LMF files contain equivalent information encoded in different ways, a mapping into a common format should be previously performed.
This webservice is a generalization of merge_lmf_files (http://services.iula.upf.edu/services/245), which merges only two files. See the documentation in merge_lmf_files for details.
WARNING: this version of the webservice only works for LMF files without references. This is, LMF files containing only “<lexicalentry>” elements. I.e. it works for morphological dictionaries, noun classification, etc but not for SCF lexica, for example. SCF lexica define first the frames associated to each verb and then the frames itself. The link between the two is made using the IDs.
This version of the webservice is not able to follow such links, so it won’t perform the merging of elements outside “<lexicalentry>” correctly. This will be developed in the future.
