Subject Re: Problem in executing DisplayCanopy
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2011 14:41:41 GMT
I can confirm the way you are running this doesn't work and I think it is both b/c the constructor
isn't public, but also because the DisplayClustering classes (DisplayCanopy, DisplayKMeans)
are intended to be run by invoking the main() method, whereas the bin/mahout program is invoking
the MahoutDriver class which tries to invoke ProgramDriver which tries to construct something
it doesn't have access to.

Can you open a JIRA issue for this?  In the meantime, the workaround is to invoke the DisplayCanopy.main()
class as you would w/ a normal Java program.
