Subject Re: Add CEP library to Flink
Date Fri, 08 Jan 2016 16:50:45 GMT
A definite +1 for this feature, thanks for your effort Till!
Really look forward to the POC foundation and would like to help contribute
where-ever possible.

Pattern matching along with event time support seems to be another major
breakthrough for stream processing framework options currently on the table.

At our company, we've been using Flink to implement pattern matching very
similar to the use cases detailed in Till's design doc for adtech related
applications. A comprehensive and expressive DSL for these applications
will be fantastic.
