Hi,
How data mining and machine learning relates to each other (if any)?
In the real world projects, which one comes first, data mining and then machine learning or machine learning and then data mining?
Thanks.

These are both general terms, and I don't think they are exclusive. One man's data mining is another man's machine learning. I personally use the terms interchangeably, but I could be wrong.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
