A prototype Java implementation of reading Parquet files into Stata.
There is currently very basic read support. Once the program is stable, I'll distribute a file that requires no installation. Until then, you'll need to build the program yourself. To build, install Java 8, Maven, and Git and run:
git clone https://github.com/kylebarron/stataParquet mvn package
Then copy or symlink the file
to whatever your
PERSONAL directory is in Stata.
javacall com.kylebarron.stataParquet.ParquetStataReader read, /// jar(stataParquetShaded.jar) /// args("path/to/parquet/file.parquet")
