Subject Re: Flink Kafka connector

Hi Robert,

connector in the current Flink master.

Well, I’ve already builded the Kafka 0.10 connector from the master, but unfortunately I
keep getting the error of the type checker that the type of the FlinkKafkaConsumer10 and the
one required by StreamExecutionEnvironment are not compatible - that is, addSource requires
a subclass of the SourceFunction<T>, whereas the instance of the FlinkKafkaConsumer10
class is of type FlinkKafkaConsumer10<T>. 

Which I find quite strange because I would assume that the FlinkKafkaConsumer instance should
be of type SourceFunction. However, the same even happened while building the FlinkKafkaConsumer09.

Any hint what might be going on?

I’ve build the jar distribution as a clean maven package (without running the tests).

producer interceptors and message timestamps.

changed the Flink Kafka 0.9 connector dependency to the required Kafka version and build the
project. However, as I imported the jar and added the source to the StreamExecutionEnvironment
a type error occurred stating that the addSource function requires a class deriving from the
SourceFunction interface.
