Subject Re: Add CEP library to Flink

+1 for the cool design proposal. I also agree with Stephan’s point to focus on the Pattern
Ultimately in the future this could be merged into the SQL lib.  There are a few “standards"
you could check out such as Oracle’s Pattern Matching extension on SQL [1], apart from EPL.

HI Till,

Have you created JIRA ticket to keep track of this proposed new feature?

We should create one to keep track updates on the effort.

Hi everybody,

recently we've seen an increased interest in complex event processing (CEP)
by Flink users. Even though most functionality is already there to solve
many use cases it would still be helpful for most users to have an easy to
use library. Having such a library which allows to define complex event
patterns would increase Flink's user range to the CEP community. Once
having laid the foundation, I'm optimistic that people will quickly pick it
up and further extend it.

The major contribution of this library would be to add an efficient
non-deterministic finite automaton which can detect complex event patterns.
For everything else, Flink already has most of the functionality in place.

I've drafted a design document for the first version. Please review it and
