Subject Re: Empty state restore seems to be broken for Kafka source (1.3.2)
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2017 12:45:50 GMT
Yes, and that's essentially what's happening in the 1.4-SNAPSHOT consumer which also has discovery
of new partitions. Starting from 1.4-SNAPSHOT we store state in a union state, i.e. all sources
get all partition on restore and if they didn't get any they know that they are new. There
is no specific logic for detecting this situation, it's just that the partition discoverer
will be seeded with this information and it will know if it discovers a new partition whether
it can take ownership of that partition.

I'm sure Gordon (cc'ed) could explain it better than I did.

actually brand new and never had any state. This is quite tricky to do, since there is currently
no way (if I'm correct) to differentiate between "I got empty state but others maybe got state"
and "this source never had state and neither had other parallel instances".
