Subject Re: [Table API/SQL] Finding missing spots to resolve why 'no watermark' is presented in Flink UI
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2018 12:52:24 GMT
Thanks again Fabian for providing nice suggestion!

Finally I got it working with applying your suggestion. Couple of tricks
was needed:

1. I had to apply a hack (create new TimestampExtractor class to package
org.apache.flink.blabla...) since Expression.resultType is defined as
"package private" for flink. I feel adjusting scope of Explain's methods
(at least resultType) to "public" would help on implementing custom
TimestampExtractor in users' side: please let me know your thought about
this. If you think it makes sense, I will file an issue and submit a PR, or
initiate a new thread in dev mailing list to discuss it if the step is

2. To ensure KafkaTableSource's verification of rowtime field type, the
type of field (here in "eventTime") should be defined as SQL_TIMESTAMP
whereas the type of field in JSON should be defined as STRING.

    .field("eventTime", Types.SQL_TIMESTAMP)
    .field("eventTime", Types.STRING)
    new IsoDateStringAwareExistingField("eventTime"),
    new BoundedOutOfOrderTimestamps(Time.minutes(1).toMilliseconds)

Thanks again!
