Subject RE: How to get started with using the Arrow Java API?
Date Tue, 21 Jul 2020 03:23:12 GMT
Hello Joris,

Thanks for your reply!
I’ve actually read your blog post before I asked my question. I think it is very well-written
and informative. Fortunately, I was able to get started with the help of your tutorial. Thank
you for sharing these!
However, maybe it will be better if there will be some official documentation if I want to
explore further. I’m beginning to see the power of Arrow and Arrow Flight in our project,
and some official documentation will be of great help if we want to continue to use Arrow
throughout our project.
Anyway, thank you so much!

Hi Xiaozhen

Sorry in advance for the self-promotion. 

I had the same issue, hence I wrote down what I figured out about the Java API in this blog

Another blog post can be found here:

And last but not least, there is some more documentation inside the source code:
In particular: 
are good starting points for exploring the API.

Best regards

I’m a contributor to the Texera ( project, which is an
online big data analytics system providing visual and interactive workflow. Current we’re
trying to use Arrow in our system (now we’re trying arrow for transferring data between
JVM and a python process, but maybe eventually we will adopt Arrow throughout our system).
However, there seem to be very few tutorials regarding the Java API of Arrow, and the documentation
provided by Arrow’s official website only has Maven JavaDoc, which is not very informative
as a starting point.
So where can I find the kind of documentation like that of C++ and Python API where many examples
are shown? I’ve noticed there are a few pages like this for Java (,
but these pages are not indexed and can only be discovered by searching. Is this something
that is being worked on?
Thank you.
