JPMML-LightGBM

Java library and command-line application for converting LightGBM models to PMML.

Prerequisites

  • Java 1.7 or newer.

Installation

Enter the project root directory and build using Apache Maven:

mvn clean install

The build produces an executable uber-JAR file target/converter-executable-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar.

Usage

A typical workflow can be summarized as follows:

  1. Use LightGBM to train a model.
  2. Save the model to a text file in a local filesystem.
  3. Use the JPMML-LightGBM command-line converter application to turn this text file to a PMML file.

The LightGBM side of operations

Using the lightgbm package to train a regression model for the example boston housing dataset:

from sklearn.datasets import load_boston

boston = load_boston()

from lightgbm import LGBMRegressor

lgbm = LGBMRegressor(objective = "regression")
lgbm.fit(boston.data, boston.target, feature_name = boston.feature_names)

lgbm.booster_.save_model("lightgbm.txt")

The JPMML-LightGBM side of operations

Converting the text file lightgbm.txt to a PMML file lightgbm.pmml:

java -jar target/converter-executable-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar --lgbm-input lightgbm.txt --pmml-output lightgbm.pmml

Getting help:
