There are plans to make stateful functions more easily embeddable within a Flink Job,
perhaps skipping ingress/egress routing abstracting all together and basically exposing the
core Flink job that is the heart of stateful functions.
Although these plans are not concrete yet I believe this would be brought to discussion with the community in the upcoming weeks.
Currently, you can split your pipeline to a preprocessing Flink job, and a stateful functions job.
I was wondering if it is possible to use a Stateful Function within a Flink
pipeline. I know they work with different API's, so I was wondering if it is
possible to have a DataStream as ingress for a Stateful Function.
Some context: I'm working on a streaming graph analytics system, and want to
save the state of the graph within a window. Stateful functions could then
allow me to process these distributed graph states by making use of the SF
