Is it possible to use Apache mahout without any dependency to Hadoop.

I would like to use the mahout algorithm on a single computer by only including the mahout library inside my Java project but i dont want to use hadoop at all since i will be running on a single node anyway.

Is that possible?

In general, not all of the Mahout depends on Hadoop. If you want to use a piece that depends on Hadoop, then you need Hadoop.

For example, there is a substantial recommender engine code base that does not use Hadoop.

You can also embed a local Hadoop cluster/worker in a Java program.

Hope this answer helps you!

You can learn in detail about Mahout by enrolling in Mahout Certification and  if you want to learn Spark then go through this Spark tutorial:
