Robust Named--Entity Recognition software is an essential preprocessing tool for performing more complex text processing tasks in business information systems. In this paper we present a Framework for Domain and Task Adaptive Named--Entity Recognition. It consists of several clear--cut subcomponents which can be flexibly and variably combined together in order to construct a task--specific NE--Recognition tool. Additionally, a diagnostic tool for automatic prediction of best system configuration is provided, which speeds up the development cycle.
