Rapid Miner process triggered by ETL / talend

Dear RM Experts,

we would like to set up a data mining process that runs automatically overnight and is triggered by an ETL solution, in our case the OS version of talend. It should work like this:

- talend moves data to a database the RM can access
- talend starts the data mining process
- RM does the mining and creates a result
- talend collects the result and copies it back to another data base

Does anyone has an opinion on such a set up or any experience? How can you trigger a RM data mining process from outside?

Thanks & kind regards,

    the most elegant version for this task is to use our server solution RapidAnalytics, with which you can export RapidMiner processes as a webservice, such that a client can trigger the process by an html query and optionally also supply input data. The results can be stored in a database or files directly from within the process, as known from RapidMiner. Additionally they can be delivered back to the client in various file formats such as plain text or xml.

    RapidAnalyitcs also allows to schedule processes such that they run e.g. each night at a specific time.

    If you do not want to setup RapidAnalytics you can start RapidMiner from the command line like this:
    rapidminer //RepositoryName/path/to/process
    Be sure to start the non-gui executable.
