Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-970) Implement a first(n) operator
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 12:30:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-970?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14042039#comment-14042039

Stephan Ewen commented on FLINK-970:
------------------------------------

There is a draft for a "distinct" operator which would solve some cases (first 1, per group).

The general version of "first" or "first 2" would be "top k", which would be a very valueable
addition. Especially "top k over <order>".

> It is only syntactic sugar, but I had many cases where I just needed the first element
 or the first 2 elements in a GroupReduce.
> E.g. Instead of
> {code:java}
> .reduceGroup(new GroupReduceFunction<String, String>() {
> 					@Override
> 					public void reduce(Iterator<String> values, Collector<String> out) throws
Exception {
> 						out.collect(values.next());
> 					}
> 				})
> {code}
> {code:java}
> .first()
> {code}
