Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-7800) Enable window joins without equi-join predicates
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2017 09:02:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-7800?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16216573#comment-16216573

Xingcan Cui commented on FLINK-7800:

Hi [~fhueske], thanks for opening this. I got a question about the join validation. Why couldn't
we "push down" all these checks (e.g., for equi-join predicate) into the DataStream/DataSet
rules and organize them in a flat mode?

> Currently, windowed joins can only be translated if they have at least on equi-join predicate.
This limitation exists due to the lack of a good cross join strategy for the DataSet API.
> Due to the window, windowed joins do not have to be executed as cross joins. Hence, the
equi-join limitation does not need to be enforces (even though non-equi joins are executed
with a parallelism of 1 right now).
> We can resolve this issue by adding a boolean flag to the {{FlinkLogicalJoinConverter}}
rule to permit non-equi joins and add such a rule to the logical optimization set of the DataStream
