[jira] [Created] (ARROW-3842) [R] RecordBatchStreamWriter api
Romain François created ARROW-3842:
Summary: [R] RecordBatchStreamWriter api
Project: Apache Arrow
Issue Type: New Feature
Reporter: Romain François
To support the "Writing and Reading Streams" section of the vignette, perhaps we should rely more on the RecordBatchStreamWriter class and less the `write_record_batch` function.
We should be able to write code resembling the python api :
batch <- ...
sink <- buffer_output_stream()
writer <- record_batch_stream_writer(sink, batch$schema())
Most of the code is there, but we need to add
- RecordBatchStreamWriter$write_batch() : write a record batch to the stream. We already have RecordBatchStreamWriter$WriteRecordBatch
- RecordBatchStreamWriter$close() : not sure why it is lower case close() in python but upper case in C++. We already have RecordBatchWriter$Close()
- BufferOutputStream$getvalue() : we already have BufferOutputStream$Finish()
Currently the constructor for a BufferOutputStream is buffer_output_stream(), perhaps we can align with python and make it BufferOutputStream, that would not clash with the `arrow::BufferOutputStream` class because of the namespacing.
