Subject [DISCUSSION] Type hints versus TypeInfoParser
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2015 14:52:33 GMT
Hi all!

We discovered a nice way to give TypeHints in the Google Cloud Dataflow
SDK, in a way that would fit Flink perfectly. I created a JIRA for that:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2788

Since this is more powerful and type safe than the String/Parser way of
giving hints, I was wondering whether we should add this and deprecate the
String variant. If we do that, 1.0 is the time to do that.

What do you think about this idea?

@Timo Walther Since you worked a lot on types/parser/etc - what is your
take on this?

Greetings,
Stephan
