We present a general approach for using a dataflow parallel execution model inside user-defined functions (UDFs) to perform data analysis and processing tasks in parallel. Specifically, we will show the use of Pervasive DataRush (a commercially licensed SDK offering a dataflow execution model to coders with little or no knowledge of multi-threaded programming concepts) in UDFs written using PL/Java. We'll quickly cover the core concepts, outline how others can do the same with existing, available tools, and discuss sweet spots.
