Sample code

Here you can find a demo java class, kindly provided by Petter Tönberg, that uses SentiWordNet to approximate the sentiment value of a word with a label.

P.S. Note that in this piece of code there is no word sense disambiguation and the scores are approximated with labels, so it's very basic.
