The long-pending research challenge of the association rule mining task is to identify, out of the multitude of discovered rules, the ones that are interesting for the domain expert. We will demonstrate a new feature of the SEWEBAR-CMS system that allows using any of the rules as a query-by-example, and in one click, discover whether this rule is in some interesting relation to a rule already stored in a knowledge base. New relations can be plugged in using a PMML-like XML-based declarative language through XSLT transformations.
