Subject [jira] Commented: (MAHOUT-94) Make the Taste Demo more automated.
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2008 13:14:44 GMT


Grant Ingersoll commented on MAHOUT-94:

One issue with getting the data automatically is that GroupLens has asked to not include their
data with the distro, since they need those that use it to acknowledge their license terms.
Automatically grabbing it also seems to go around that. 

Hmm, not sure here.  We could, in the demo instructions, tell them to read the README first.
 Also, I don't think we are violating any of their terms.  We aren't redistributing and we
aren't using it commercially.   The only part we haven't done is let them know of our usage.

The jetty part is possible, sure. There's yet another little catch that may make it hard to
make this plug-and-play and that is that the demo needs a large heap, which is not available
by default, which means setting command line options. That could be taken care of in an ant
target I guess.

What I have so far is just automating the setup and packaging, but I don't actually start

I've excluded the Axis stuff for now, but that will need to be worked in.  I'll post a patch

was easier to get up and going.  For instance, we could have an Ant task that automatically
gets the data and puts it into the work directory just like we do for Reuters, Wikipedia and
Twenty News.  Then, we could also ship Jetty w/ the examples, such that one just needs to
do {code}java -jar start.jar{code} to fire up the WAR and have it running (Solr does this)
