MURENA has been designed in order to efficiently support the user in the process of extracting knowledge from a relational database.
In particular, the system supports relational data mining tasks from data stored in an ORACLE relational database.
Relational Data Mining functionalities. MURENA embeds the Multi-relational Data mining systems Mr-SBC and Mr-SMOTI for classification and regression tasks respectively.
Distributed architecture. MURENA has been designed in order to allow multiple users to exploit its functionalities. MURENA interfaces every ORACLE local/remote database.
Portability. MURENA has been developed in java and uses the Enterprise Java Beans(TM) technology.
Space complexity. MURENA does not store the entire database in main memory, but directly queries the database when necessary.
MURENA is a three tier client-server application that consists of three main components:
The Server component can manage several clients simultaneously. In order to interface remote ORACLE databases by means of a JDBC connection, it is sufficient to specify the IP address, the port and the database SID.
By means of the user interface, the user can:

The distribution package
MURENA Server is provided as a .jar file and can be executed on every machine with a JVM (1.4.0 or higher) installed.
Due to the use of the Application server, the client part is not available for download (if necessary, contact the contact person).
Warning: The system MURENA is free for evaluation, research and teaching purposes, but not for commercial purposes.
