Data mining and scoring tool providers require users to use provider-specific ways to invoke their services. The provider-specific approach could be a major factor affecting why data mining tools and applications are not currently as widespread as one might hope. However, SOA can implements the loose coupling between the services provider and services consumer. Using Web service protocol (such as SOAP, WSDL and UDDI), the data mining task can be encapsulated into a standard Web services. Services consumer can dynamically bound different services provider based on Web services, which implements the integration of data mining applications with data mining and scoring tool. The Java Data Mining API (JDM) is the first attempt to create a standard Java API to access data-mining tools from Java applications. A new service discovery model where quality of service is taken as constraints when searching for Web services would give some confidence to the Web service consumers about the quality of the service they are about to invoke.
