Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-4022) Replace colt dependency (LGPL) with commons-math
Date Tue, 21 Oct 2014 01:10:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-4022?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14177763#comment-14177763
] 

Xiangrui Meng commented on SPARK-4022:
--------------------------------------

[~srowen] We use its random number generators and the stat.Probability package in core and
mllib. It would be great if you can work on this JIRA. There are couple places we need to
change:

1) sampling
2) chi-sq tests
3) random forests
4) some unit tests

We also need to shade the commons-math3 jar because hadoop depends on it. Fortunately, commons-math3
doesn't have any run-time deps.

> The colt library we use is LGPL-licensed:

> We need to swap this out for commons-math. It is also a very old library that hasn't
been updated since 2004.
