As far as I know weka cannot be run on hadoop directly.
What can be done is if your algorithm first generats a model based on a training data initially,
then you can run your training offline on your laptop and serialize, i.e. write the trained
model in a file. Now, put this model file on hdfs and read it inside your setup method of
map reduce programs.
As and when you read your input in your mapper method, you can take the trained model file
to determine any decision such as a classification or other supervised machine lerarning algorithm
decisions.
I did this for SVM and it did work.
I am interested to know if anyone else has tried any alternate method to port weka algorithms
on hadoop.
Thanks!
