Apache Spark reassigned SPARK-7990:

    Assignee: Apache Spark

> Add methods to facilitate equi-join on multiple join keys
> ---------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SPARK-7990
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: SQL
>            Reporter: Reynold Xin
>            Assignee: Apache Spark
> We have a variant of the join function that facilitates equi-join on a single join key,
but we don't have one to do it for multiple join keys.
> This is the existing Python API:
> {code}
> def join(self, other, joinExprs=None, joinType=None):
> {code}
> I think we should rename joinExprs to "on", and joinType to "how" to match Pandas. And
then the "on" column should support either a string, a join condition, a list of string, or
a list of join condition ("and" together).
> In order to support the Python API, we'd need to add a variant for Scala as well. I think
we can add another join method that looks like
> {code}
> def join(other: DataFrame, on: Seq[String], joinType: String): DataFrame
> {code}
> and update the existing Scala one to call this one.
