Subject Re: How to use VolcanoPlanner
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 23:38:29 GMT
The link you provided is a pretty good example. Build a FrameworkConfig
with your schema, parser config, and other information, and use it to
create a Planner. That Planner uses a VolcanoPlanner internally. What's
missing from that particular example is just the addition of programs.
Programs are effectively sets of rules you will use to optimize your query.
So, to add your FilterProjectTransposeRule to the planner, call this when
building your FrameworkConfig:


That adds your program(s) to the set of programs in the planner, and those
programs can be accessed to optimize the query. Use the planner to parse()
your query, validate() your query, and then convert() your query into a
logical plan. Then call...

RelTraitSet traitSet = planner.emptyTraitSet().replace(Convention.NONE);
planner.transform(0. traitSet, logicalPlan);

to apply the rules you added to the configuration. That should use the
VolcanoPlanner to apply the rules you added in your Program. The trait set
that's passed to that method is the required output trait set. So, if you
wanted to convert the logical plan into some physical convention, you'd
pass your physical convention instead of Convention.NONE. I can respond
with a full example if you need it in a bit. I just don't have the capacity
to write it ATM.
