PrunedFilteredScan Contract — Relations with Column Pruning and Filter Pushdown

PrunedFilteredScan is the contract of BaseRelations with support for column pruning (i.e. eliminating unneeded columns) and filter pushdown (i.e. filtering using selected predicates only).

package org.apache.spark.sql.sources

trait PrunedFilteredScan {
  def buildScan(requiredColumns: Array[String], filters: Array[Filter]): RDD[Row]
Table 1. PrunedFilteredScan Contract
Property Description


Building distributed data scan with column pruning and filter pushdown

In other words, buildScan creates a RDD[Row] to represent a distributed data scan (i.e. scanning over data in a relation)

Used exclusively when DataSourceStrategy execution planning strategy is requested to plan a LogicalRelation with a PrunedFilteredScan.

PrunedFilteredScan is a "lighter" and stable version of the CatalystScan Contract.
JDBCRelation is the one and only known implementation of the PrunedFilteredScan Contract in Spark SQL.
