Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-1696) Allow explicit output time for processing time timers
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2017 04:07:04 GMT


Kenneth Knowles commented on BEAM-1696:

That is a fair point. I don't have a confident understanding of whether BEAM-1697 should just
be rolled into this or not. Probably yes.

> Today, a processing time timer is not associated with a particular output timestamp;
instead the user must explicitly output to the desired timestamp.
> This has a few drawbacks:
>  - Probably need to maintain state that indicates what the timestamp should be
>  - The output watermark is not held to that timestamp
> Something like {{processingTimer.set(...).withOutputTimestamp(...)}} (or perhaps some
more involved API with an {{OutputTimeFn}}-like policy attached) would work nicely, so when
{{@OnTimer}} is called the right timestamp is automatic.
