----------------------------------

             Summary: The groupReduceOn* methods which take types as a parameter fail with
TypeErasure
                 Key: FLINK-2899
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2899
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Gelly
    Affects Versions: 0.10
            Reporter: Andra Lungu


I tried calling  groupReduceOnEdges (EdgesFunctionWithVertexValue<K, VV, EV, T> edgesFunction,
EdgeDirection direction, TypeInformation<T> typeInfo) in order to make the vertex-centric
version of the Triangle Count library method applicable to any kind of key and I got a TypeErasure
Exception. 

After doing a bit of debugging (see the hack in https://github.com/andralungu/flink/tree/trianglecount-vertexcentric),
I saw that actually the call to TypeExtractor.createTypeInfo(NeighborsFunctionWithVertexValue.class,
.... in ApplyNeighborCoGroupFunction does not work properly, i.e. it returns null. From what
I see, the coGroup in groupReduceOnNeighbors tries to infer a type before "returns" is called.


I may be missing something, but that particular feature (groupReduceOn with types) is not
documented or tested so we would also need some tests for that.
