Backend data model deserialization


Elliot Block <eblock@...>
 

Hello,

Is there any supported way (e.g. a class/API) for deserializing raw data model rows, i.e. to get from raw Bigtable bytes to Vertex/edge list objects (in Java)?

https://docs.janusgraph.org/advanced-topics/data-model/

We're on the Cloud Bigtable storage backend, and it has excellent support for bulk exporting Bigtable rows (e.g. to Parquet in GCS), but we're unclear how to deserialize the raw Bigtable row/cell bytes back into usable Vertex objects.  If we were to build support for something like this, would it be a candidate for contribution back into the project?  Or is it misunderstanding the intended API/usage path?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
