    +A task in Flink is the basic unit of execution. This is the place where each parallel
instance of your operators gets executed. 
    +This document goes through the different phases in the lifecycle of the `StreamTask`,
which is the base for all different task sub-types in Flink's streaming engine. 
    +* This will be replaced by the TOC
    +## Operator Lifecycle in a nutshell
    +As the task is the entity that executes your operators, its lifecycle is tightly integrated
with that of an operator. Given this, it is worth spending a few lines 
    +simply mentioning the basic methods representing the lifecycle of an operator before
diving into those of the `StreamTask` itself. The list is presented below in 
    +the order that they are called. These are:
    +        // initialization
    +	    initializeState()
    +	    setup()
    +	    open()
    +	    // processing
    +	    processElement()
    +	    processWatermark()
    +	    // termination
    +	    close()
    +	    dispose()
    +        // checkpointing
