Classifying examples using a web service

Hi all

I have read and built the tutorial that exposes a process as a web service in RapidAnalytics. The tutorial uses a macro to get data into the model via the query string in the request. But how do I classify an example using the web service? By that I mean providing attributes in some format (mabe POST key/value pairs), apply a model and get the classification back.

In the screencast at;feature=player_embedded Rapid-i does the thing I want using around 10:00 but ist says nothing about how the process is set up.

Thanks in advance for any input on this.

Kindest regards

    Hi, I'm also interested in this topic but up to now no-one seems to be interested to answer this.

    I remember I have already answered this question once somewhere, but I cannot find the link. Anyway: In the old version, I defined a macro for each attribute and used "Generate Data by User Specification" to create a one-line exmple set. This, admittedly was ugly. As of RA 1.1 you can directly POST CSV, Excel, or XML files to the Web service. Check this out:

    Hey Simon,

    Yes, you responded to this issue before, even on youtube; however, I would still like to inquire to how you connected rapidanalytics to the 'Generate Data By User Specification' operator. I understand that you believe it is an 'ugly' solution, but it is the one that I require. I have no need to supply data in a CSV, XML or any other format other than a parameter in the URL.

    Many thanks for your videos and your dedication to creating rapidminer, rapidanalytics and all the extensions.
