In the Mahout training course, we have an exercise of handwritten character
recognition with Mahout:

In the exercise, we use Mahout's random forest.

For those who are interested, there is a demo:

How to use demo:

1. Using a mouse, draw a digit ('0', '1', ..., '9') in the smaller box (HTML5 Canvas)
2. Click [Classify] button (Do not click more than once, please!)
3. Wait 15 seconds, you'll get the result in the larger box

Note that we use the nearest neighbor method (not random forest) in this demo.

Hope this helps.
