[Python][Dataset] Expose schema inference / validation options in the factory

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

Details

    Description

      ARROW-8058 added options related to schema inference / validation for the Dataset factory. We should expose this in Python in the dataset(..) factory function:

      • Add ability to pass a user-specified schema with a schema keyword, instead of inferring the schema from (one of) the files (to be passed to the factory finish method)
      • Add validate_schema option to toggle whether the schema is validated against the actual files or not.
      • Expose in some way the number of fragments to be inspected when inferring or validating the schema. Not sure yet what the best API for this would be.
