first, thank you for your interest in SMILA.
Let me recap the use case that you would like to cover with your
1. The application runs only on one node - the user's computer
2. Only the local files (on user's computer) are being processed and
ontology is being built (locally) from the information contained in them.
In this case using the whole SMILA might be an overkill since SMILA was
built with scalability (parallel processing of huge amount of
information on several nodes) in mind.
But since SMILA offers very flexible workflow management (synchronous
and asynchronous) for information processing too, you could perhaps
profit from it in your application. So, if your workflows are complex
and even need to be modifyed frequently, my suggestion would be to
provide processing logic in several pipelets and connect them in a one
or several BPEL workflows. The user could then choose between some of
them (directly or indirectly) and thereby "tweak" the business logic.
If all of this is still to complex for you, then you could indeed use
only some parts of SMILA like for example the SesameOntolotyManager.
