Hi all,
I am a beginner. I need to develop a data mining application using Apache Myfaces and Trinidad.
I am using Oracle 10g as my database and Tomcat as web server.

Please can anyone guide me so as to how to start off and which other API's i need to use. I have heard about Oracle Java Data Mining API.
How to use that. Any help on this subject would be really helpful.

My business need is that i need to predict an outcome based on the previous data of users.
What else needs to be done.

Thanks,
Anshu

What do you have so far? JSF is probably the least important part of it - it's just the view layer. I'm sure Oracle has lots of material about the Data Mining API.

Hi,

Those are questions for you to answer. We don't know what "my result" is, so we couldn't begin to speculate on how you might go about obtaining it. Question that may help you get started are: What are the inputs? What are the outputs? How are they related?

Thanks a lot for your reply ULF.
Well there are security reasons for which i cant discuss the details. but here is the basic idea:
I need to predict that whether a prospective customer will buy my goods or not based on the previous habits of my exsisting customers.
What i have found out is that i need to use Classification Algorithms such as Decision Trees or Naive Bayes.
Beyond that i am stuck up as how to develop the application. I know my inputs and outputs just not sure how and where to apply them
which api i need?? and what softwares??
Please help.
Thanks,
Anshu.

Books like http://www.manning.com/alag/ and http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596529321 cover the kinds of algorithms you'd need to implement, and will provide you with a proper grounding in the subject.
