Subject Re: How to set unorderedWait/orderedWait properties in Table API when using Async I/O
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2020 11:18:40 GMT

The ordering in streaming SQL is very important, because the accumulate and
retract messages are emitted in order.
If messages are out of order, the result will be wrong. Think of you are
applying an un-ordered changelog, the result will be non-deterministic.
That's why we only support "ordered" mode for async lookup join.

The support for "un-ordered" mode is on the roadmap, but that will be more
complex, because the planner should check it doesn't affect
the order of acc/retract messages (e.g. it is just an append-only stream).

I created https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-16332 to track this
