We've done this now. Below is a copy of the announcement from the gate-users mailing list.

If you download the model files for Dutch and put them in the models/dutch subdirectory of GATE's OpenNLP plugin, the sample application should just work.


We've substantially updated GATE's OpenNLP plugin over the past few days to use the latest version of the OpenNLP library and the current model files. This updated plugin is available from svn and in today's daily snapshot, and will be included in the 7.1 release.

The plugin includes model files for English and sample applications (gapp files) for English, Dutch, and German. You need to download the model files for all languages other than English, as documented in the updated GATE user guide.


Models are available for Danish, German, English, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, and Swedish, but not for all the tools in each language. (The GATE PR supports the Maxent POS tagging models but not the Perceptron ones.)


If you have annotated corpora, you can train your own models using the OpenNLP training API outside of GATE, as described in the OpenNLP manual.
