Backend data model deserialization

Elliot Block <eblock@...>


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)?

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!
