Chapter 9. Connecting the dots with GraphX

This chapter covers

  • Using the GraphX API
  • Transforming and joining graphs
  • Using GraphX algorithms
  • Implementing the A* search algorithm with the GraphX API

This chapter completes your tour of Spark components with an overview of GraphX, Spark’s graph-processing API. In this chapter, we’ll show you how to use GraphX and give you examples of using graph algorithms in Spark. These include shortest paths, page rank, connected components, and strongly connected components. If you’re interested in learning about other algorithms available in Spark (triangle count, LDA, and SVD++), or more about GraphX in general, Michael Malak and Robin East go into much more detail in their book GraphX in Action (Manning, ...
