Subject [Gelly] Re-organize / cleanup examples and library
Date Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:14:55 GMT
Hello squirrels,

adding Gelly examples has been a great way to let in new contributors and
we have had quite a big number of contributions!
However, I think it's about time we re-organize and clean them up a bit.

We currently have 13 examples.

- 5 examples simply use vertex-centric library methods, i.e. they are
almost identical and the only method they demonstrate is graph.run(new

I think it's enough if we keep 1 of those. Another problem is that the
implementations of these methods are "hidden" inside the library methods. I
propose we turn 1 of the 5 examples into showing how to use vertex-centric

- 3 examples show how to use the GSA iteration. We can also keep 1, e.g.
The other 2 can be moved to the library.

- I think the rest of the examples have a purpose and show how to use
different Gelly methods:

1. EuclideanGraphWeighing: use of triplets
2. GraphMetrics: use of metrics and statistics methods
3. IncrementalSSSP: use of message direction in iterations
4. JaccardSimilarity: use of neighborhood methods and joins
5. MusicProfiles: how to mix Gelly with the DataSet API

To sum up, I propose we keep the above 5 examples, plus 1 to show how to
use library methods, 1 for vertex-centric and 1 for GSA -> total 8 and move
the redundant GSA implementations to the library.

I believe we should also improve the examples documentation and refer to
the functionality that each of them demonstrates.

What do you think about this? If you agree, I will create a JIRA and do it!
