Subject Re: Question regarding checkpoint/savepoint and State Processor API
Date Tue, 21 Jan 2020 16:11:04 GMT
Hi Seth,

Thanks for the prompt response! Regarding my second question, once I have
converted the existing savepoint to dataset, how can I convert the dataset
into BroadcastState?

For example, in my BroadcastProcessFunction:

@Override
public void processBroadcastElement(String key, Context context,
Collector<JsonNode> collector) throws Exception {

// Todo how to add existing BroadcastState from savepoint beforehand?
  BroadcastState<String, String> broadcastState =
context.getBroadcastState(keySetStateDescriptor);
  broadcastState.put(key, key);
}


Thanks a lot!
Eleanore
