Subject Re: Using Beam Built-in I/O Transforms with an external framework.
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2019 21:17:29 GMT
Hi Pulasthi,

This might be possible but I don't know if anybody has done this. API of
Beam sources are no different from other Beam PTransforms and we highly
recommend hiding away various implementations of source framework related
abstractions in a composite transform [1]. So what you are looking for is a
way to use a Beam transform in a separate system.
