Yes. More Precisely, first 300 kafka-messages.

That's a great indication. It describe well the affair.
But, according to the document, it says "The operations are actually 
executed when the execution is explicitly triggered by an execute() call 
on the execution environment.".
What does it mean?
AFAIK, common Flink programs invoke execute() in main().
Every operators start at this time? I think maybe no.

Thank you very much for your kindness.
