Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-2230) Add Support for Null-Values in TupleSerializer
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:29:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2230?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14596084#comment-14596084

Stephan Ewen commented on FLINK-2230:

There have been many discussions about whether we want null support in the tuples.

I am still big time sceptical. It makes the whole key handling and normalized keys more complicated.
And it costs performance.
Also, there are very easy workarounds (option type in scala, POJO types in Java)
