Eugene Kirpichov closed BEAM-65.
Fix Version/s: 2.2.0
SDF has been available in the Beam model and implemented in Direct and Dataflow
streaming runner for a while. Other work can be tracked separately - there is
no clear completion criterion for the current Jira justifying keeping it open.

> Issue Type: New Feature
> Components: beam-model
> Reporter: Daniel Halperin
> Assignee: Eugene Kirpichov
> Priority: Minor
> Fix For: 2.2.0
> SplittableDoFn is a proposed enhancement for "dynamically splittable work" to
> the Beam model.
> Among other things, it would allow a unified implementation of
> bounded/unbounded sources with dynamic work rebalancing and the ability to
> express multiple scalable steps (e.g., global expansion -> file sizing &
> parsing -> splitting files into independently-processable blocks) via
> composition rather than inheritance.
> This would make it much easier to implement many types of sources, to modify
> and reuse existing sources. Also, it would improve scalability of the Beam
> model by moving things like splitting a source from the control plane (where
> it is today -- glob -> List<FileBasedSource> sent over service APIs) into the
> data plane (PCollection<Glob> -> PCollection<FileName> -> ...).
