Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-524) Giraph can receive input from vertex or edge-centric data sets; its output is graph data, not "vertices"
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2013 20:52:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GIRAPH-524?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13583542#comment-13583542

Alessandro Presta commented on GIRAPH-524:
------------------------------------------

All I'm saying is that the concept of output format is relative to whatever produces the output,
in this case Giraph. In the Giraph model, we produce zero/one/many records/lines/blobs for
each vertex. That's not a matter of naming, it's structural.
There doesn't have to be any trace of vertices and edges in the resulting output, and whatever
system consumes that output doesn't care how it was produced.
So to be honest I think this is a non-issue, but maybe I'm still missing the point.

> It is silly to have any of our Output format names tied to the "vertex" when in fact
we are just outputting graph data. The output format names should reflect the formatting of
the output, and perhaps which elements of the graph data you want in the output.
> Lets change those names? Then they get shorter too as a bonus.
