Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-3097) Add support for custom functions in Table API
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 22:32:11 GMT
Timo Walther created FLINK-3097:

             Summary: Add support for custom functions in Table API
                 Key: FLINK-3097
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-3097
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Table API
            Reporter: Timo Walther
            Assignee: Timo Walther

Currently, the Table API has a very limited set of built-in functions. Support for custom
functions can solve this problem. Adding of a custom row function could look like:
TableEnvironment tableEnv = new TableEnvironment();

RowFunction<String> rf = new RowFunction<String>() {
    public String call(Object[] args) {
        return ((String) args[0]).trim();

tableEnv.getConfig().registerRowFunction("TRIM", rf,

DataSource<Tuple1<String>> input = env.fromElements(
    new Tuple1<>(" 1 "));

Table table = tableEnv.fromDataSet(input);

Table result = table.select("TRIM(f0)");
This feature is also necessary as part of FLINK-2099.
