Hi all,

I use rapidminer 5.1.011 to design a text classification process, it's working fine in GUI. Now i'm trying to automate this process in java program. I wrote a simple Java program and when i run it i got the following errors:

com.rapidminer.operator.UserError: Could not read file '/home/some_user/wordlist': java.io.IOException: Cannot read from XML stream, wrong format: WordList : WordList.

Appreciated ur help!

    It looks like i have to specify mode as "ExecutionMode.COMMAND_LINE" instead of "ExecutionMode.EMBEDDED_WITHOUT_UI", though i still dont know the difference between these two  ???

    From API doc:
    public static final RapidMiner.ExecutionMode COMMAND_LINE
        RM is executed using RapidMinerCommandLine.main(String[]).

    public static final RapidMiner.ExecutionMode EMBEDDED_WITHOUT_UI
        RM is embedded into another program.

    have a look at the constructor of the ExecutionMode enum:

    private ExecutionMode(boolean isHeadless, boolean canAccessFilesystem, boolean hasMainFrame, boolean loadManagedExtensions) {
    COMMAND_LINE sets loadManagedExtensions to true, however EMBEDDED_WITHOUT_UI sets it to false.
    WordList is an IOObject from the Text Processing Extension, therefore managed plugins need to be loaded, otherwise a process using anything from these plugins will fail (as yours did).

    If I have a model build up using rapidminer and need to check the exact java code for this model, like where is the file that does stemporter in code for example, can I do that?
  • nawafpowernawafpower Member Posts: 34  Maven
    Thanks haddock, I did go to the com.rapidminer.operator.text package and it was empty, may be when I did the run configuration steps to make RM runs through eclipse did miss something, actually I have other packages showing as empty, can anybody tell me how to get the contents of these packages? Thanks

    How did you input the process through command line. Please let me know.
  • RapidQuesRapidQues Member Posts: 8 Contributor I
    Also, what do i input as command line argument to the program?

    for RapidMiner Studio 6, call the rapidminer-batch.bat/rapidminer-batch.sh file and pass the repository location, i.e. "//Local Repository/My folder/my_process". Alternatively you can add "-f" as a parameter followed by a whitespace and then the path to the .rmp file on the harddrive, i.e. -f C:\Users\xyz\.RapidMiner\repositories\Local Repository\Process.rmp
