Can install Cask CDAP on mapR edge-node using mapR client?

Question asked by reedv on May 17, 2018

Looking at the docs for installing CDAP for mapr hadoop systems by the MapR partner Cask, it hints at the possibility of 'installing on and edge-node' (https://docs.cask.co/cdap/current/en/admin-manual/installation/mapr.html#create-the-cdap-user). My question (for any other MapR users that have used CDAP) is: by 'edge-node', does this refer to a node that is neither a data-node or control-node on the cluster but rather any machine running the mapr-client software (enabling it to submit mapred. and yarn jobs, as well as run hadoop fs commands) (https://maprdocs.mapr.com/home/AdvancedInstallation/SettingUptheClient-mapr-client.html) able to interact with the cluster? So does this mean that CDAP could be, for example, installed on a dedicated server that uses the mapr-client software (rather than on the cluster itself)? Thanks.
