Subject [jira] [Commented] (MINIFI-422) Incorporate MiNiFi Java functionality as a specialized assembly of NiFI
Date Sat, 23 Dec 2017 04:25:00 GMT


Joseph Percivall commented on MINIFI-422:

Definitely interested in how this would pan out and I agree that it could go a long way in
streamlining and promoting the MiNiFi Java development. As well as facilitating better feature
parity between the two. +1

Do you foresee integrating some of the current MiNiFi specific functionality (ie. config change
listeners) into core NiFi or would they stay separate?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache NiFi MiNiFi
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Aldrin Piri
> At its core the Java implementation of MiNiFi has largely been a core body of NiFi core
libraries in a separate assembly with some additional extension points, namely those of configuration
(via YAML) and configuration change listeners.  
> Due to working with some of the internals of NiFi that are not exactly meant for external
consumption, there has been a certain impedance with each successive release to make use of
the latest and greatest.
> This ticket is to investigate and consider the incorporation of MiNiFi Java into the
NiFi code base in a manner as highlighted above, extending/adapting the core libraries, providing
some additional extension points, and then generating a custom assembly.
> The idea is that in lieu of duplicating bits of code and providing workarounds around
some of the internal APIs we can have a more streamlined build and keep these items in lockstep
with the core NiFi libraries being more aware of changes that MiNiFi is inherently dependent
> To our users, there should be little perceptible change.  The core means of interaction
should remain while providing a similar footprint.
