Implementation of the JClose algorithm for mining equivalence classes and informative bases of association rules. This software, distibuted as an executable JAR file running in command line, generates the Informative Basis for association rules given user-specified minconfidence and minsupport thresholds.
Generators and frequent closed itemsets are first extracted according to the minsupport threshold (defining minimal frequency for frequent itemsets in the data). Then, the equivalence classes and the Informative Basis for association rules are generated from them using the minconfidence threshold (defining the minimal precision of association rules).
