Merging many Parquet files

Has anyone tried to use commandline tools to merge many Parquet files into one? I tried using parquet-tools' merge command, but I cannot get any of the versions with the merge command, 1.8.2, 1.9.0, 1.9.1, to build. Is there a better way or can someone give some help here?

Re: Merging many Parquet files

parquet-tools version 1.8.2 supports merge command. During the build, change the version of apache parquet to 1.8.2-SNAPSHOT in pom.xml for both parquet-mr and parquet-tools,


[user@host parquet-mr]$ cat pom.xml
<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
