Calcite-Avatica-Go Codebase Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


Calcite-Avatica-Go is a client for Apache Phoenix and Apache Calcite Avatica written in the Go programming language and contributed by Boostport. It describes itself as "Apache Phoenix/Avatica SQL Driver". It is self-contained module, and a medium-sized code base (30 files, 8,000 lines of code). Because it is a different language from current Avatica (Go versus Java) it will probably become a new module in a new git repo and separate releases. It remains to be decided whether we keep the Phoenix-specific customizations in this module or apply those directly in Phoenix.
