Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-262) Native Runners | Direct Compiler
Date Sun, 08 May 2016 20:02:12 GMT


Suminda Dharmasena commented on BEAM-262:

For what Beam does you do not need the fully fledged overhead of Apache Flink or Apache Spark.
If you look at languages like CAL Actor Language what is needed is much more rudimentary to
run dataflow pipelines. So what is needed is what you have to have to run the DF pipelines
and not all that is present in the underlying frameworks.

> Having to depend on other frameworks to do the heavy lifting means that the quakes, limitation
and overhead of the other platform limits what can be achieved. Hence is it possible to have
Beam directly generate code for LLVM, JVM and .Net platforms without dependence on any other
> Also perhaps there can be code generation than directly native code in high level languages
like C/C++, Java, C#, F#, Rust, Julia, D, Nim, etc.
