---------------------------------------

             Summary: NPE on TypeSerializer.serialize with a RocksDBStateBackend calling state.entries
in the open() function
                 Key: FLINK-6061
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-6061
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: DataStream API, State Backends, Checkpointing, Streaming
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
            Reporter: Vladislav Pernin


With a default state (heap), the call to state.entries() "nicely fails" with a IllegalStateException
:
{noformat}
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: No key set.

With a RocksDBStateBackend, it fails with a NPE :

The reason is that the record is null, because backend.getCurrentKey() is null (not yet set)
in AbstractRocksDBState.
This may also be the case for other RockDBState implementations.

You can find the reproducer here based on 1.3-SNAPSHOT (needed for the MapState) :
https://github.com/vpernin/flink-rocksdbstate-npe

The reproducer is a non sense application. There is no MapState with TTL or expiration yet,
so the goal is to try to shrink or expire the state at some interval.
This could be done by iterating over the entries of the state and removing some of them.

This could probably not be done in the open() method of a rich function.
I also tried to implement CheckpointListener and to access the state content in notifyCheckpointComplete()
method, but it fails to, I guess due to the asynchronous nature of the checkpoint.
