The new version of the RapidMiner extension "Data Search for Data Mining" (version 2.0.0) has been released on the RapidMiner Marketplace.
Sometimes, data may not be moved to a remote server. In such cases, the Backend Search Engine developed by the University of Mannheim needs to be installed locally on-premise. In more restricted environments, it may be desired to process data on the client side, independent of any Backend server. For this purpose, a new operator, namely the "Create Correspondences" operator has been developed, which implements a variant of the Constrained Search algorithm. Together with the "Translate" and "Advanced Fuse" operators, it provides the Search-Join mechanism completely at the client side, provided that the user already has a collection of relevant tables in RapidMiner.
Similarly, the last release (version 1.0.1) of the "Data Search for Data Mining" extension provided a new operator, namely the "Enrich Table by Data Fusion" operator. This operator implements a variant of the Unconstrained Search algorithm, so users can also perform multi-attribute search on the client side now.
