Java Data Mining (JDM), the new standard implemented in core DBMSs and data mining/analysis software, is the key solution for those who want to take advantage of data mining in the development of advanced analytic applications. Java Data Mining: Strategy, Standard, and Practice is the essential guide to the usage of the JDM standard interface. This reference will help you produce applications with advanced analytics and predictive analytic capabilities, and it is the first and authoritative guide to JDM, written by contributors to the JDM standard.

The book discusses and illustrates how to solve real problems using the JDM API. The authors provide you with: o An overview of data mining and JDM's place in strategic solutions to data mining-related problems; o JDM's essentials-the design approach and design issues, with detailed code examples; a Web Services interface to enable JDM functionality in an SOA environment; and illustration of JDM XML Schema for JDM objects; o JDM in practice-the use of JDM from vendor implementations and approaches to customer applications, integration, and usage; impact of data mining on IT infrastructure. Here, we illustrate how to build applications that use the JDM API.
