Subject Re: Unit testing a simple function
Date Wed, 24 Jan 2018 11:18:55 GMT
Paul, Charles,

Thanks for the pointers.
These really helped in getting started.

I'm trying to fully understand the (simple) UDF Charles created a while ago
for a java library of mine

I noticed that it has not been updated for a long time so I decided to pull
it into my project.
This way I have a reason to dive into Drill and get to know it a bit better
and to make the UDF better maintained.
I already have UDFs for Pig, Hive, Flink and Beam so Drill would be a
sensible addition.

So as a first step I pulled the existing code in an tried to create a few
tests based on the examples and documentation you guys sent me.

Work in progress (which fails on the tests):

Some of the things I ran into that confuse me:
*1)* For some reason the netty version packaged with Drill 1.12.0
consistently fails with this error at the root cause when trying to run
*Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:

I found that the io.netty.buffer.PooledByteBufAllocatorL inherits
from io.netty.buffer.PooledByteBufAllocator which in the version I get from
the drill dependencies does not have that method.
My workaround was to exclude 'netty-all' from the 'drill-java-exec'
dependency and re-add 'netty-all' version 4.0.28.Final to my project.
This works but feels bad.

My first impression is that this is a bug in Drill 0.12.0.

*2)* I always see this warning when running:
11:49:38,556 [WARN ] GuavaPatcher                            :   40: Unable
to patch Guava classes.
javassist.CannotCompileException: by java.lang.LinkageError: loader

at javassist.CtClass.toClass(CtClass.java:1140)
at org.apache.drill.exec.util.GuavaPatcher.patch(GuavaPatcher.java:36)

My project does not include any guava so this also seems like a drill issue.

*3)* In the unit test examples I see input/output using simple types like
float and int.
I could really use examples that show me how to do the same things with
NullableVarCharHolder, BaseWriter.ComplexWriter.
Especially how do I create an instance of DrillBuf to set the input of a

So far I have downloaded the drill codebase to figure out how to do this
but I have to say that at this point it is still very hard.

Any help with these point is greatly appreciated.
