Hi Emmanuel,

the feature you are looking for is called event time processing in Flink.
These blog posts should help you to become familiar with the concepts:

1) Event-Time concepts: http://data-artisans.com/how-apache-flink-enables-new-streaming-applications-part-1/
2) Windows in Flink: http://flink.apache.org/news/2015/12/04/Introducing-windows.html
3) Event-Time example use-case: https://www.elastic.co/blog/building-real-time-dashboard-applications-with-apache-flink-elasticsearch-and-kibana
4) Code for example: https://github.com/dataArtisans/flink-streaming-demo

Best, Fabian

I have used Flink to stream data and do analytics on the stream, using time windows...
Now, this is assuming the data is effectively coming in real time. However I have a use case
where the data is 'batched' upstream, and comes in bursts, but has a timestamp.It obviously
messes up the windowed stream assumption. (note it is a problem with queuing in Kafka for
example when there is any kind of downtime downstream of Kafka: if data accumulates and then
is consumed, it is consumed at higher 'speed' than real clock time and statistics do not match
So my question is:
Is it possible to use a window stream based on a timestamp key for time, as opposed to clock
How would one do this with the current API?
