Subject Re: Access to storm fieldsGrouping hashing method in bolt/spout
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2016 17:46:25 GMT
I cannot completely follow you use case and what you want to accomplish...

However, even as there is no official API to call the hash function, it
is actually pretty simple. Storm internally creates a List of the
fieldsGrouping attributes and call .hashCode() on it (and of course
applies a modulo afterwards).

I actually wrote a wrapper to call the internal hash function once (it
works for 0.9.3 -- not sure if it is compatible with newer versions).
You can find the code here:

The project assembles a Java class with a static method to expose a
simple to use Java API that call internal Storm core stuff to get the
receiver task ID.

> StormConnector.getFieldsGroupingReceiverTaskId(
	TopologyContext ctx,
	String producer-component-id,
	String output-stream-id,
	String receiver-component-id,
	List<Object> tuple);
