I'd like to know if Mahout can be used by beginners in Java programming.

Thank you

I think you need a good working knowledge of Java to use Mahout effectively, partly because you will probably want or need to look at the source code frequently. I would not describe it as "for beginners", but at the same time I don't think you need particularly advanced knowledge of Java to use it.
