Subject Re: Collect event which arrive after watermark
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2018 22:05:15 GMT
Window operators drop late events by default. When they receive a late
event, they already computed and emitted a result.
Since there is not good default behavior to hay ndle a late event in this
case, they are simply dropped.
However, Flink offers multiple ways to explicitly handle late events such
as sending them to a side output or computing and emitting an updated

So, if you apply a ProcessFunction before any other operator, you can
handle all late events.

Best, Fabian
