is it possible to use apache mahout classification without hadoop dependency
Is it possible to use Apache mahout classification without any dependency to Hadoop. I would like to use the mahout algorithm on a single computer by only including the mahout library inside my Java project but i dont want to use hadoop at all since i will be running on a single node anyway, windows 7 operating system.
Is that possible? If yes , which algorithm run without hadoop dependency?
Thank you in advanced
Yes, it is possible to run Mahout without having to install a Hadoop cluster. All you need to do is set the environment variable
On seeing this variable, Mahout will start interacting directly with the file system for data, etc. without trying to look for a Hadoop cluster or a HDFS location.
