There's lots going on this week — including some updated frameworks, conferences, and news releases.
Apache Gora just had a major update to support more Big Data and NoSQL datasources. Some of the versions, like for Spark (1.4.1) ,are a bit old but should work for many cases. This project is definitely worth an investigation.
JPMML is for Spark and Java and Scala consumer and producer libraries. The Java Evaluator API is for Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML).
