Spark OrientDB Connector

This library allows you to:

  • access OrientDB classes as Spark RDDs
  • access OrientDB graphs as GraphX graphs
  • write RDDs to OrientDB
  • write GraphX graphs to OrientDB

leveraging a co-located hybrid Spark/OrientDB cluster.

How to get started

Prerequisites

  • sbt 0.13.x
  • an OrientDB instance or several instances in distributed mode
  • a Spark cluster

Download source code and build connector

Clone connector repository with the following git commands:

	git clone https://github.com/metreta/spark-orientdb-connector.git
	cd spark-orientdb-connector
	git checkout tags/<tag_version>

where <tag version> is the version compatible with your Spark and OrientDB clusters you can find in the version list.

Then build the connector with sbt:

	sbt package

Create an sbt project and add dependencies

Create a basic Spark sbt project, add the connector jar you just built to the /lib folder and then add the following dependencies to your build.sbt:

  libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
    "com.orientechnologies" % "orientdb-core" % "2.1.0",
    "com.orientechnologies" % "orientdb-client" % "2.1.0",
    "org.apache.spark" % "spark-core_2.11" % "1.4.0",
    "org.apache.spark" % "spark-graphx_2.11" % "1.4.0",
    "com.tinkerpop.blueprints" % "blueprints-core" % "2.6.0",
    "com.orientechnologies" % "orientdb-graphdb" % "2.1.0",
    "com.orientechnologies" % "orientdb-distributed" % "2.1.0"
    )

Don't forget to choose the appropriate library versions as listed in the version list.

Set up example data in OrientDB

Define a class Person in your OrientDB instance:

CREATE CLASS Person EXTENDS V
CREATE PROPERTY Person.name string
CREATE PROPERTY Person.surname string
CREATE CLASS Friendship EXTENDS E

Insert some data to create a graph:

CREATE VERTEX Person SET name = 'John', surname = 'Doe'
CREATE VERTEX Person SET name = 'Mary', surname = 'Smith'
CREATE VERTEX Person SET name = 'Frank', surname = 'White'
CREATE VERTEX Person SET name = 'Lois', surname = 'Parker'

CREATE EDGE Friendship FROM (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'John' and surname = 'Doe') TO (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'Mary' and surname = 'Smith') 
CREATE EDGE Friendship FROM (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'John' and surname = 'Doe') TO (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'Frank' and surname = 'White')
CREATE EDGE Friendship FROM (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'Frank' and surname = 'White') TO (SELECT FROM Person WHERE name = 'Lois' and surname = 'Parker')

Write an empty Spark app class

package com.mycompany.sparkorientdbdemo

import org.apache.spark.SparkConf
import org.apache.spark.SparkContext
import com.metreta.spark.orientdb.connector._

object Demo extends App{

// Spark app code

}

Configure Spark context

Create a Spark configuration object and set OrientDB connector specific parameters :

val conf = new SparkConf()
    .setMaster("local[*]")
    .setAppName("OrientDBConnectorTest")
    .set("spark.orientdb.clustermode", "remote")
    .set("spark.orientdb.connection.nodes", "x.x.x.x, y.y.y.y, z.z.z.z") 
    .set("spark.orientdb.protocol", "remote") 
    .set("spark.orientdb.dbname", "connector-test")
    .set("spark.orientdb.port", "2424")
    .set("spark.orientdb.user", "root")
    .set("spark.orientdb.password", "pAzzw0rd")

Now create a SparkContext:

val sc = new SparkContext(conf)

Read and write data

Following OrientDB multi-model approach the connector allows to access OrientDB data from Spark and write them back to OrientDB in two ways:

  • Document approach: read OrientDB classes as Spark RDD and write an RDD to an Orient class
  • Graph approach: read an OrientDB database as a GraphX graph object and write it back into a an OrientDB database

Use the function orientQuery to get an RDD containing all the entries of an OrientDB class:

 	val rddPeople = sc.orientQuery("Person")

rddPeople is an object of OrientClassRDD type containing all the entries from the Person class as OrientDocument objects.

The function saveToOrient writes an RDD of case objects to an OrientDB class:

	rddMyPeople.saveToOrient("Person")

To get a GraphX graph object from an OrientDB database use the orientGraph function:

	val graphPeople = sc.orientGraph()
