Andy Huang updated SPARK7894:

Description:
This operator aims to union two graphs and generate a new graph directly. The union of two
graphs is the union of their vertex sets and their edge families.Vertexes and edges which
are included in either graph will be part of the new graph.
bq. G ∪ H = (VG ∪ VH, EG ∪ EH).
The below image shows a union of graph G and graph H
!union_operator.pngwidth=600px,align=center!
A Simple interface would be：
bq. def union[VD: ClassTag, ED: ClassTag](other: Graph[VD, ED]): Graph[VD, ED]
However, inevitably vertexes and edges overlapping will happen between borders of graphs.
It is necessary to consider how to handle this case for both Vertex and Edge. For vertex,
it's quite nature to just make a union and remove those duplicate ones. But for edges, a mergeEdges
function seems to be more reasonable.
bq. def union[VD: ClassTag, ED: ClassTag](other: Graph[VD, ED], mergeEdges: (ED, ED) =>
ED): Graph[VD, ED]
