主题:Re: [DISCUSS] FLIP-22: Eager State Declaration

Hi, all, we have jobs which create state according to type of the key and a 
dynamic configuration: 

eg: key_type_1's aggregation function is average, while key_type_2's is sum 

we need to create state dynamically because the aggregation function may 
change in runtime and different aggregation function may need different 
state to persistent state. It is really hard to declare state eagerly. 

In the flip, I think the main concern to propose the eager declaration of 
state is to make sure when restoring  we can have all states registered. 
how about just persisting state descriptor in state handle and 
automatically register states in restoring?
