Subject broadcasting a stream from a collection that is populated from an web service call
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2017 21:27:24 GMT
It’s good to be here. I have a data stream coming from kinesis. I also have a list of hashmap
which holds metadata that needs to participate in the processing.
In my flink processor class I construct this metadata (hardcoded)

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {


DataStream<ObjectNode> jsonStream = see.addSource(new FlinkKinesisConsumer<>("int-harvester-kinesis-us-west-2",
new MyJsonDeserializationSchema(), consumerConfig));

DataStream<HashMap<String,String>> metaStream = env.fromCollection(metadata);

DataStream<String> outStream = metaStream
                                .connect(jsonStream).flatMap(new SplitterCoFlatMapFunction());

SplitterCoFlatMapFunction extends RichCoFlatMapFunction

By doing the above I can operate on my jsonStream and avail elements of hashMap in that processing.

I am not sure , as a next step , if I am given a rest api ,which will eventually give me the
latest version of that metadata collection , what is the right way to do that call and from
where , as when flink process is started the metadata is already prepared and propagated to
the workers,where can I refresh it.

What is the most correct way of doing it?
