Can I create my own new operator?

I am beginner at RapidMiner and I'm wondering if/how could I add in the RapidMiner's database my own operator. (I mean, I have created an algorithm and I want to add it in the database,  representing it by an operator)
Thank you in advance

    Hello eirinikp and welcome to RapidMiner

    On the sourceforge download site is a file named tutorial.pdf available:;package_id=123637

    In this pdf you will find everything you need  ;)

    Thank you for your answer.
    What I see is that I have to write my own code using RapidMiners' classes and create a new operator. There is no such thing in the Community Edition. Right?

    I do not quite understand your question. But let my try to make things clear. You can extend RapidMiner by writing your own Java code which relies on or uses the classes of RapidMiner. This is of course possible with the Community Edition (as implied by the name ;)). You simply have to check out the source code of RM from sourceforge. The following link explains how to do this using the Eclipse IDE:,de/

    Hope that helps,
