As I understand GF is well suited for parsing well defined formal languages.
Not sure that GF can be used as NLP parser for blog messages that I need.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

As a general note, Java has tons of useful libraries that will take infinite
time to re-implement in Haskell. To my mind it makes a lot of sense to have
a reliable mechanism to call Java from Haskell.
BTW, yet another way to do this: wrap Java library in RESTFUL web service )

All the best,
Dmitri O. Kondratiev
