where to put adaboosting operator

I have a simple question about adaboosting. I look it up in the message board and the web but did not find  relevant information about it.

My question is where to insert adaboosting operator into a modeling process. The main components in the process is the data and validation (with training and testing panel). In the training panel, I pick naive bayes. In the testing panel, I put apply model and then performance operator in it.

So if I want to add the adaBoost operator, where shall I insert this operator?

Thank you all.

    Hi YunD,

    adding AdaBoost to your setup is really simple. It encapsulates a modeling operator in order to boost its usability. Since you are training multiple models when using AdaBoost a simple learning scheme like Naive-Bayes or a decision tree is recommended. Per default ten models are trained, adjusting example weights during each run. Finally a boosted model is returned, which is a weighted ensemble of the different models trained during the boosting procedure. Please have a look at the demo process:
