Subject Re: [Flight] TiDB Flight connector
Date Sun, 15 Nov 2020 16:38:38 GMT
We are actively discussing "FlightSQL" to provide a standardized
Flight-based interface to a SQL database

I think it would make sense for you to use this rather than building
something custom -- that way once FlightSQL ships to production,
people will be able to access TiDB out of the box with a FlightSQL
client (from one of the Arrow open source packages)
