Subject RE: [EXT] ConvertCSVToAvro vs CSVReader - Value Delimiter
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:56:07 GMT

I'm also using Ctrl+A as a delimiter and had the same problem.  I haven't had time to write
up a PR but it looked like a pretty easy fix to me too.

I can't merge the change if you submit it, but I'd be happy to review it.

Subject: [EXT] ConvertCSVToAvro vs CSVReader - Value Delimiter


The ConvertCSVToAvro processor have been having performance issues while processing files
which are more than a GB and I was suggested to use the ConvertRecord that leverages the RecordReader
and Writer. Did some tests and they do perform well.

Strangely, the CSVReader doesn't accept unicode character as the value delimiter - Control
A  (\u0001) character is the delimiter of my CSV.

Did some analysis and I see that a minor change needs to be made on the CSVUtils to unescape
the delimiter, like what ConvertCSVToAvro does and also modify the SingleCharacterValidator.

Please let me know if you believe this isn't an issue and there's a workaround for this. Else,
I am more than happy to raise an issue and submit a PR for review.

Best Regards,
