Subject [jira] [Updated] (SPARK-30131) Add array_median function
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2019 23:22:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-30131?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Alexander Hagerf updated SPARK-30131:
-------------------------------------
    Description: 
It is known that there isn't any exact median function in Spark SQL, and this might be a difficult
problem to solve efficiently. However, to find the median for an array should be a simple
task, and something that users can utilize when collecting numeric values to a list or set.

This can already be achieved by using sorting and choosing element, but can get cumbersome
and if a fully tested function is provided in the API, I think it can solve some headache
for many.
