> Hi!
> From PySpark, I am trying to define a custom aggregator *that is accumulating state*.
Is it possible in Spark 2.3 ?
> AFAIK, it is now possible to define a custom UDAF in PySpark since Spark 2.3 (cf [How
to define and use a User-Defined Aggregate Function in Spark SQL?|]),
by calling {{pandas_udf}} with the {{PandasUDFType.GROUPED_AGG}} keyword.
> However given that it is just taking a function as a parameter I don't think it is possible
to carry state around during the aggregation with this function.
> From Scala, I see it is possible to have stateful aggregation by either extending {{UserDefinedAggregateFunction}}
or {{org.apache.spark.sql.expressions.Aggregator}} , but is there a similar thing I can do
on python-side only?
> If no, is this planned in a future release?
> thanks!
