Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-58) Implement PObject in Crunch/Scrunch
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 01:03:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-58?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453601#comment-13453601

Josh Wills commented on CRUNCH-58:
----------------------------------

So cool. My only quibble is with the getPipeline/getName/write methods on PObject as opposed
to returning a reference to the backing PCollection-- what was the use case you had in mind?

> FlumeJava has the concept of a PObject<T>, a container for a singleton of type
T.  It is meant represent the result of a distributed computation that yields a singleton
value (for example max, min, and length methods on PCollection<T>).  Generally speaking,
the result of any computation that combines/reduces a PCollection into a singleton value could
be represented by a PObject.  
> Like PCollection, a PObject defers distributed computation until its value is actually
used.
