Oracle Data Mining embeds data mining in the Oracle database. The data never leaves the database -- the data, data preparation, model building, and model scoring activities all remain in the database. This enables Oracle to provide an infrastructure for data analysts and application developers to integrate data mining seamlessly with database applications.

Oracle Data Mining is designed for programmers, systems analysts, project managers, and others interested in developing database applications that use data mining to discover hidden patterns and use that knowledge to make predictions.

There are two interfaces: a Java API and a PL/SQL API. The Java API assumes a working knowledge of Java, and the PL/SQL API assumes a working knowledge of PL/SQL. Both interfaces assume a working knowledge of application programming and familiarity with SQL to access information in relational database systems.

This document describes using the Java and PL/SQL interface to write application programs that use data mining. It is organized as follows:

1.1 ODM Requirements and Constraints

Anyone writing an Oracle Data Mining program must observe the following requirements and constraints:
