Subject [jira] [Created] (HELIX-416) Make the task framework more extensible
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2014 20:25:14 GMT
Kanak Biscuitwala created HELIX-416:

             Summary: Make the task framework more extensible
                 Key: HELIX-416
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HELIX-416
             Project: Apache Helix
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Kanak Biscuitwala
            Assignee: Kanak Biscuitwala

The current task framework is good for the use case where we want to run identical tasks according
to a target resource's assignment. However, realistically, we want things like:

- Each task partition can correspond to a different task
- Some task groups shouldn't have a status corresponding to them; they should be able to take
on additional task partitions dynamically
- There should be some notion of independence, in that a target resource (or lack thereof)
can say that arbitrary task partitions can be assigned to arbitrary live participants

This is a pretty involved undertaking, so this will encompass some subtasks.
