In this post, we learn about building a basic search engine or document retrieval system using Vector space model. This use case is widely used in information retrieval systems. Given a set of documents and search term(s)/query we need to retrieve relevant documents that are similar to the search query.
The problem statement explained above is represented as in below image. …Continue

While importing the structured text files into the database using Java alone, we need to combine the SQL statements together manually, and to deal with various troublesome situations as well, like if the data in a table has been existed, whether we should update it or insert data into it, if some fields are included in the file, and if the fields in the file are consistent with those in the table.
As esProc participates in Java programming, these problems can be solved…Continue

There is a type of text files that they are too big to be entirely loaded into the memory, yet as the data have been sorted by a certain column and if they are imported in groups according to this column, they can be all put into the memory for computing. These text files include the call detail record of a telecom company, statistics of visitors on a website, information of members of a shopping mall, etc.
A great deal of complicated code, which is difficult to maintain, is…Continue

As Java doesn’t directly support dynamically parsing expressions in the text files, the computation can only be realized by splitting strings manually and then writing a recursive program. The whole process requires writing a great amount of code, is complicated and the code is difficult to maintain. With the assistance of esProc, we can develop program for the computation in Java without writing code manually. Let’s look at how esProc works through an example.
Here is a text…Continue

Following problems will arise if you perform conditional filtering on text files in Java alone:
1. The text file is not a database,so it cannot be accessed by SQL. The code needs to be modified if filtering conditions are changed. Besides, if you want a flexible conditional filtering as that in SQL, you have to self-program the dynamic expression parsing and evaluating, resulting in a great amount of programming work.
2. Stepwise loading is required for the big files that…Continue

Java doesn’t support set operations directly, so nested loops have to be used to realize the operations of intersection, union, complement and etc. between text files. If there are many text files, or the file to be computed is too big to be loaded into the memory, or it is required to perform set operations according to multiple fields, the code will become even more complicated. However, with the assistance of esProc, which supports set operations…Continue

esProc can help Java deal with various computations in processing structured texts. But in the case of non-single row records, it is necessary to preprocess the data before esProc can perform computations on it.
Let’s look at this through an example. The text file Social.txt is the access records of a website, in which every three rows corresponds to a record. The records should be rearranged first before other computations can be performed. They should be imported in the form…Continue

Generally, Java programmers use poi or other open source packages to read and compute Excel data. These open source packages support low-level programming, which increases the overall learning cost and complicates the operation. But with the help of esProc, Java can avoid these problems.…Continue

The join statements of the database can be used conveniently to perform the operation of alignment join. But sometimes the data is stored in the text files, and to compute it in Java alone we need to write a large number of loop statements. This makes the code cumbersome. Using esProc to help with programming in Java can solve the problem easily and quickly. Let’s look at how this works…Continue

Text files often brings headache for data analysts, are there any more convenient way for text files process? I prepare a case on how esProc deal with it, including import various text files; process big text files; visit text files of hdfs; as well as general operations, such as, file moving, deleting and checking whether a file exists. The following will illustrate these functions through examples. …Continue
