Subject Re: Kafka and Flink's partitions

Hello, thanks for the answer.

Is it an assumption only or are some examples exist? Yesterday I wrote a
question about incompatibility of keyed serializer in Flink with Kafka's
deserializer.

2. Why do you assume that this would end up in one partition?


Just assumption. I don't know ways how to check it.

Ok, I know about it. But "smallest" is a way to repeat test with same data.


The question from my side in general. Is the implementation
https://github.com/rssdev10/flink-kafka-streaming/blob/master/src/main/java/FlinkStreamingConsumer.java
appropriate to the schema in the first email?


Regarding the example. This small autonomous test is based on DIMA's
project. And in this form you can use it, If it may be useful.


Thanks,
best regards.
