Subject Re: More information regarding the Project suggestions given on the Hadoop website
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 06:55:12 GMT
Hello!


Based on couple of existing genetic algorithms library available on the
net, my team and I have come up with a design for the library. But we are
not able to understand how to validate the library -

Are there any test designs followed to test if a library is working
correctly?


I would like to again mention that we are graduate students and have just
started working on Hadoop.

Thanks in advance,
Varsha
