Subject Advice - Drools in Flink
Date Tue, 21 Jun 2016 05:55:03 GMT
Hello

Firstly, I am an absolute Flink newbie.

I am interested in using Drools in Flink - in a similar case to what is
described in this blog, where Drools is used in Spark.
http://blog.cloudera.com/blog/2015/11/how-to-build-a-complex-event-processing-app-on-apache-spark-and-drools/

The basic idea is that Drools can be used to reason over streaming data.

The high-level use case is, there are several hundred users who want to
write rules to be notified on events related to changes in specific
streams. For example, notify me when a specific stock price changes by so
much.

Due to the number of users, the more end-user focused syntax of Drools, and
the number of rule changes, doing this in Drools makes more sense than to
write and deploy plain-old-flink (apologies, am not familiar with the
correct term for a flink process).

Also, as Drools has some powerful CEP operators, it could be very
interested to have these available in Flink too.

My question, therefore, is, very general - how best to integrate Drools
into Flink? Where should I start?

Thanks and regards
Anton
