GraphX

While graph for Scala may be considered a DSL for graph operations and querying, one should go to GraphX for scalability. GraphX is build on top of a powerful Spark framework. As an example of Spark/GraphX operations, I'll use the CMU Enron e-mail dataset (about 2 GB). The actual semantic analysis of the e-mail content is not going to be important to us until the next chapters. The dataset can be downloaded from the CMU site. It has e-mail from mailboxes of 150 users, primarily Enron managers, and about 517,401 e-mails between them. The e-mails may be considered as an indication of a relation (edge) between two people: Each email is an edge between a source (From:) and a destination (To:) vertices.

Since GraphX requires the data in RDD format, ...
