  • Upsert support with fast, pluggable indexing
  • Atomically publish data with rollback support
  • Snapshot isolation between writer & queries
  • Savepoints for data recovery
  • Manages file sizes, layout using statistics
  • Async compaction of row & columnar data
  • Timeline metadata to track lineage

Hudi supports three types of queries:

  • Snapshot Query - Provides snapshot queries on real-time data, using a combination of columnar & row-based storage (e.g Parquet + Avro).
  • Incremental Query - Provides a change stream with records inserted or updated after a point in time.
  • Read Optimized Query - Provides excellent snapshot query performance via purely columnar storage (e.g. Parquet).

  • Git
  • Maven
# Checkout code and build
git clone https://github.com/apache/incubator-hudi.git && cd incubator-hudi
mvn clean package -DskipTests -DskipITs

To build the Javadoc for all Java and Scala classes:

# Javadoc generated under target/site/apidocs
mvn clean javadoc:aggregate -Pjavadocs

Build with Scala 2.12

The default Scala version supported is 2.11. To build for Scala 2.12 version, after code checkout run dev/change-scala-version.sh and build using scala-2.12 profile

dev/change-scala-version 2.12
mvn clean package -DskipTests -DskipITs -Pscala-2.12
