Subject RE: Generate _SUCCESS (map-reduce style) when folder has been written
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2016 15:37:40 GMT
Thanks, it is working properly now.
NB : Had to delete the folder by code because Hadoop’s OuputFormats will only overwrite
file by file, not the whole folder.

Hi Gwenhael,
The _SUCCESS files were originally generated by Hadoop for successful jobs. AFAIK, Spark leverages
Hadoop's Input and OutputFormats and seems to have followed this approach as well to be compatible.
You could use Flink's HadoopOutputFormat which is a wrapper for Hadoop OutputFormats (both
mapred and mapreduce APIs).
The wrapper does also produce the _SUCCESS files. In fact, you might be able to use exactly
the same OutputFormat as your Spark job.

Sorry if it’s already been asked but is there an embedded way for flink to generate a _SUCCESS
file in the folders it’s been writing into (using the write method with OutputFormat) ?

We are replacing a spark job that was generating those files (and further operations rely
on it).

Best regards,
