Can't import CSV data on Mac

Hi
I'm new here. I'm just getting started with RapidMiner.
I'm trying to import a csv file and clicking import csv doesn't do anything.
Am I missing something? I've followed tutorials and in them a wizard appears, which doesn't happen in my case.
The only three options that work are import access, database and binary.

Well, I'm on 10.6.8 thus Java 6... Unresolvable as far as I know...

Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

Hi,

I'm afraid if you do not have access to Java 7, you will either need to use RM 5.3.008, or update your OS to Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) for the imports to work correctly.

Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

I'm on Mountain Lion and using RM 5.3.013. I have Java 7.

I opened RM from inside the scripts folder by double clicking RapidMinerGUI.

When the tool started the first time, I was not prompted for creating a new repository. I started a New Process and then created a new repository. If I try to import a .csv, I get nothing and there's not error messages either.

Can someone help?!

Hi,

what does it say when you enter the following in your terminal?

java -version

Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

Hi March

java version "1.6.0_43"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_43-b01-447-11M4203)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.14-b01-447, mixed mode)

That's what  I see.

Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

Hi,

so your Mac is not using Java 7 as the default JVM. Can you try the following:
Go to your Java Preferences in the utilities, and change the order (drag) so Java 7 is at the top.
Then run the terminal test again.

Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

Thanks Marco

The funny thing is that in my java preferences under Java Runtime Environment Settings, I only see 1.7. The Java Control Panel is available in my System Preference and that means my system is using Java 7 (I think) but when I run the command Java -version in my terminal, it still returns:
java version "1.6.0_43"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_43-b01-447-11M4203)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.14-b01-447, mixed mode)

I am at a complete loss on forcing my system to use Java 7.

[Solved] Re: Can't import CSV data on Mac

It turns out when I installed Java 7 it didn't get rid of Java 6.  I had to get rid of Java 6 then reinstall java 7 then the program worked fine.

Hi

 I am running RM 5.3.013 and OSX 10.8.5 and this feature still does not work????  I can not import CSV files.
