Development of new component in Eclipse

Dear Sirs,

I have been a user of Rapid Miner 5 for a while and now I decided that I need to pass to develop my own components (trevial).
I downloaded the tutorial http://1xltkxylmzx3z8gd647akcdvov.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/How-to-Extend-RapidMiner-5.pdf
which seems quite analytic. I do have Java 1.7 and Eclipse but I missed something regarding the following points.

1. You mention on page 19 on top that "On your website we will find a tutorial how to check out the latest version of RapidMiner from the svn repository.". I can not find it, could you help me?
2. You mention that we can test if it starts by creating a debug configuration and starting the RapidMinerGUI class. How can I do that?
3. You mention that with this tutorial you got two zip, I can not find them. Do you have them?
4. What id RapidMiner_Venga that you have in picture 4.1? Is the source of RapidMiner for deployment?

Thank you in advance hoping that you will give the above point the proper attention and consideration.
Best regards,
Manolis

    Hi Manolis,

    Things probably have moved around.  Googling RapidMiner svn directs me here:
    http://community.rapidminer.com/svn/

    Which then directs to here: http://community.rapidminer.com/eclipse/ where the tutorial is.  


    (Although you might want one of the RapidMiner team to confirm as I just noticed a forum post saying they have moved to git http://rapid-i.com/rapidforum/index.php/topic,7023.0.html.  As far as I'm aware you can still use the subversion though.

    Hi,

    the tutorial is a bit outdated I'm afraid.

    1) Use git instead. See here: http://rapid-i.com/rapidforum/index.php/topic,7023.0.html
    2) Once you checked out the RapidMiner project, you can use Eclipse to run it. RapidMinerGUI is the main gui class which starts up RapidMiner from inside your IDE.
    3) Check here for the extension template: https://github.com/rapidminer/rapidminer-extension-template
    4) RapidMiner_Vega was the codename for RapidMiner 5.1, as was RapidMiner_Unuk for 5.2, etc. Nothing special ;)

    Regards,
    Marco

    I follow your instructions and I managed to upload RapidMiner in Eclipse, but I got the following error messages.
    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I don't see any relevant errors in the log. Don't be scared of the [Fatal Error] :1:1: Premature end of file, as this error is no actual error (message was removed in 6.0 and appeared when no database connections had been set up). The other exception about the OperatorUsageStatistics I have never seen, but the operator statistics are completely irrelevant for you (they were a tool for us to help gain insight in how and what operators were used). Should not break anything if they don't work for some reason.

    Regards,
    Marco
