Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-4217) KStream.transform equivalent of flatMap
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2016 21:18:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4217?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15606502#comment-15606502

Guozhang Wang commented on KAFKA-4217:

For now a suggested workaround would be {{stream.transform(...).flatMap((k, v) -> v)}}.

> {{KStream.transform}} gives you access to state stores while allowing you to return zero
or one transformed {{KeyValue}}.  Alas, it is unclear what method you should use if you want
to access state stores and return zero or multiple {{KeyValue}}.  Presumably you can use {{transform}},
always return {{null}}, and use {{ProcessorContext.forward}} to emit {{KeyValues}}.
> It may be good to introduce a {{transform}}-like {{flatMap}} equivalent, or allow store
access from other {{KStream}} methods, such as {{flatMap}} itself.
