Subject Re: Apache Tinkerpop & Geode Integration?

Hi Vasia -

Yes, a FlinkGraphComputer should be a straight-forward first step. Also, on
the Apache Tinkerpop dev mailing list, Marko thought it might be cool if
there was a "Graph API" similar to the "Table API" -- hooking in Gremlin to
Flink's fluent API would give Flink users a full graph query language.

Stephen Mallette is a TinkerPop core contributor, and he has already
started working on a FlinkGraphComputer. There is a Flink/Tinkerpop thread
on the TinkerPop dev list -- it would be great to have you part of the
conversation there too as we work on the integration:

Thanks, Vasia.

- James
