Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-8353) Add support for timezones
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2018 11:09:00 GMT
Timo Walther created FLINK-8353:

             Summary: Add support for timezones
                 Key: FLINK-8353
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8353
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Table API & SQL
            Reporter: Timo Walther

This is an umbrella issue for adding support for timezones in the Table & SQL API.

Usually companies work with different timezones simultaneously. We could add support for the
new time classes introduced with Java 8 and enable our scalar functions to also work with
those (or some custom time class implementations like those from Calcite). We need a good
design for this to address most of the problems users face related to timestamp and timezones.

It is up for discussion how to ship date, time, timestamp instances through the cluster.
