DL4J Step

Example of applying DL4J Step

This example splits into two parts which are configuring the inference configuration and running the server.

import ai.konduit.serving.examples.utils.Train;
import ai.konduit.serving.models.deeplearning4j.step.DL4JStep;
import ai.konduit.serving.pipeline.impl.pipeline.SequencePipeline;
import ai.konduit.serving.vertx.api.DeployKonduitServing;
import ai.konduit.serving.vertx.config.InferenceConfiguration;
import ai.konduit.serving.vertx.config.InferenceDeploymentResult;
import com.mashape.unirest.http.Unirest;

import io.vertx.core.DeploymentOptions;
import io.vertx.core.VertxOptions;
import org.json.JSONArray;
import org.json.JSONObject;
import java.util.Arrays;

A reference Java project is provided in the Example repository from https://github.com/KonduitAI/konduit-serving-examples with a Maven pom.xml dependencies file. If using the IntelliJ IDEA IDE, open the java folder as a Maven project and run the main function of Example_1_Dl4jStep class.

Configure the step

Let's start from the main function by getting the trained model.

//get the file of trained model
Train.ModelTrainResult modelTrainResult = Train.dl4jIrisModel();

Create an inference configuration by default.

//a default Inference Configuration
InferenceConfiguration inferenceConfiguration = new InferenceConfiguration();

We'll need to include DL4JStep into the pipeline and bind with the inference configuration. Specify the following:

  • modelUri : the model file path

  • inputNames : names for model's input layer

  • outputNames : names for model's output layer

//include pipeline step into the Inference Configuration
        .add(new DL4JStep() //add DL4JStep into pipeline

Deploy the server

Let's deploy the model in the server by calling DeployKonduitServing with the configuration made before. The handler, a callback function, is implemented to capture a successful or failed server deployment state.

//deploy the model in server
DeployKonduitServing.deploy(new VertxOptions(), new DeploymentOptions(),
        handler -> {
            if (handler.succeeded()) { // If the server is sucessfully running
                // Getting the result of the deployment
                InferenceDeploymentResult inferenceDeploymentResult = handler.result();
                int runnningPort = inferenceDeploymentResult.getActualPort();
                String deploymentId = inferenceDeploymentResult.getDeploymentId();

                System.out.format("The server is running on port %s with deployment id of %s%n",
                        runnningPort, deploymentId);

                try {
                    String result = Unirest.post(String.format("http://localhost:%s/predict", runnningPort))
                            .header("Content-Type", "application/json")
                            .header("Accept", "application/json")
                            .body(new JSONObject().put("layer0",
                                    new JSONArray().put(Arrays.asList(1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0)))

                    System.out.format("Result from server : %s%n", result);

                } catch (UnirestException e) {

            } else { // If the server failed to run

Note that we consider only one test input array in this example for inference to show the model's deployment in Konduit-Serving. After execution, the successful server deployment gives below output text.

The server is running on port 39615 with deployment id of 2fe69a2d-1276-4a1d-b5af-50191640019f
Result from server : {
  "layer2" : [ [ 5.287693E-4, 0.02540398, 0.9740673 ] ]

Process finished with exit code 0
