Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-91) Retractions
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 00:34:57 GMT


Matt Pouttu-Clarke commented on BEAM-91:
^^ provides the basic description
^^ provides definition of the basic mapping to flatbuffer serialization

I am working on examples of basic versioning as well as branching / merge / change data processing

The question I get asked most is why an "UPDATE" is composed of a redaction followed by an
assertion rather than just one record.  The answer is that this provides several huge benefits
including very efficient refresh of downstream aggregations, splits, merges, easier data diff,
and much easier reconciliation.  This will become clear with my subsequent examples to come.

We should document all the necessary aspects (uncombine, reverting DoFn output with DoOvers,
sink integration, source-level retractions, etc), and then implement them.
