Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-3404) Extend Kafka consumers with interface StoppableFunction
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:24:13 GMT

Martin Liesenberg commented on FLINK-3404:
------------------------------------------

I have been looking at this task recently and just want to make sure I understand it correctly:
there are a {{close}} and a {{cancel}} method already. the difference of the {{stop}} method
would be the issuing of the checkpoint, right?

> Kafka consumers are not stoppable right now. To make them stoppable, they must implement
{{StoppableFunction}}. Implementing method {{stop()}} must ensure, that the consumer stops
pulling new messages from Kafka and issues a final checkpoint with the last offset. Afterwards,
{{run()}} must return.
> When implementing this, keep in mind, that the gathered checkpoint might later be used
as a savepoint.
