Subject Re: Iterate several kafka topics using the kafka connector
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:22:44 GMT
It is possible to instantiate the FlinkKafkaConsumer with multiple topics
[1]. Simply pass a list of topic names instead of a the name of a single
topic.

streams.add(env.addSource(new
FlinkKafkaConsumer09<>(Arrays.asList("foo", "bar", "foobar"),
                    new JSONSchema(), properties));
