Subject Re: Joining two aggregated streams
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2017 13:45:49 GMT

For this case, I would suggest to implement the join operation “by hand” using a CoProcessFunction:
You would have the first stream on the first input and the second stream on the second input.
Inside the function you keep in state the stuff that you want to emit when you see that flag.
Possibly in ListState. I would also suggest to set a cleanup timer to make sure that you cleanup
state in case you never see the flag that triggers processing of your window.
