Subject: ARMiner - free association rules miner
ARMiner is a free client server application for discovering association
rules in datasets. ARMiner has been written in Java as a project for the
Software Engineering course offered by the Department of Mathematics and
Computer Science of UMass/Boston. It is being distributed under the Gnu
General Public License.

ARMiner currently implements two algorithms: Apriori (R. Agrawal & R.
Srikant, Fast Algorithms for Mining Association Rules, VLDB 1994) and
Closure (D. Cristofor, L. Cristofor & D. Simovici, Galois Connections and
Data Mining, JUCS 2000) but more algorithms can be added. ARMiner also
offers a synthetic data generator that uses the generation procedure
described by Agrawal & Srikant, user management, and the possibility of
comparing the performance of the algorithms implemented.

Sources, binaries, and documentation of ARMiner are available from
