    Hi there,
    Thank you for your time to have a look at my problem.
    It seems like that I found the solution now.
    I can get the medoids now.
    I added  getMedoids(), setMedoids(String[] medoids) methods in FlatCrispClusterModel, FlatClusterModel and KMedoids.
    Also a small modification in KMedoids.

    Hi Amy,
    the forthcoming release 4.3 includes a new version of the kmedoids algorithm. It then will provide a simple model, providing the medoids.
    This means: Your problem will be solved then. But this means your changes are somehow outdated yet :)

    By the way: If you want to test the developer version of 4.3, check out the branch Zaniah. There are some other improvements regarding the clustering, espacially the performance.
