Subject Re: How to convert List to flink DataSet
Date Wed, 10 Feb 2016 17:29:49 GMT
Hello Fabian,

As written before code:



*DataSet<Tuple3> fElements =
env.fromCollection(findOutliers(clusteredPoints,
finalCentroids));fElements.writeAsCsv(outputPath, "\n", "
");env.execute("KMeans Example");*
I am very new to flink so not so clear about what you suggested, by
option(1) you meant that I write my own FileWriter here rather than using
*writeAsCsv()* method. And option(2) I couldn't understand where to compute
the outlier. I would want to use the *writeAsCsv() *method but currently it
doesn't perform the write operation and unable to understand why.

An interesting thing I found is, when I run the *outlierDetection* class
from eclipse a single file *result* gets written within the kmeans folder,
whereas in case of default *KMeans* class it writes a result folder within
the kmeans folder and the files with points are written inside the result
folder.
I give the necessary path in the arguments while running.
Eg: file:///home/softwares/flink-0.10.0/kmeans/points
file:///home/softwares/flink-0.10.0/kmeans/centers
file:///home/softwares/flink-0.10.0/kmeans/result 10

Now, after I create the runnable jar file for KMeans and outlierDetection
class,  when I upload it to *flink web submission client *it works fine for
*KMeans.jar*, the folder and files get created. But incase of
*outlierDetection.jar* no file or folder get's written inside kmeans.

How is it that outlier class is able to write file via eclipse but outlier
jar not able to write via flink web submission client.

Subash Basnet
