Appending to streaming file format
Hey, as far as I can tell it looks like appending to a streaming file format isn't currently supported, is that right?
RecordBatchStreamWriter always writes the schema up front, and it doesn't look like a schema is expected mid file ( assuming im doing this append test correctly, this is the error I hit when I try to read back this file into python:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/ra7293/rba_arrow_mmap.py", line 9, in <module>
table = reader.read_all()
File "ipc.pxi", line 302, in pyarrow.lib._RecordBatchReader.read_all
File "error.pxi", line 79, in pyarrow.lib.check_status
pyarrow.lib.ArrowIOError: Message not expected type: record batch, was: 1
This reader script works fine if I write once / don't append. I can work around by not appending but creating new files any time I restart, I just wanted to confirm im not missing something.
Also, fyi, I opened a ticket last week that append is broken with the FileOutputStream ( unrelated to this email thread )
