>                 Key: KAFKA-4325
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4325
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: streams
>            Reporter: Matthias J. Sax
>            Priority: Minor
> Windows are kept until their retention time passed. If a late arriving record is processed
that is older than any window kept, a new window is created containing this single late arriving
record, the aggregation is computed and the window is immediately discarded afterward (as
it is older than retention time).
> This behavior might case problems for downstream application as the original window aggregate
might we overwritten with the late single-record- aggregate value. Thus, we should rather
not process the late arriving record for this case.
> However, data loss might not be acceptable for all use cases. In order to enable the
use to not lose any data, window operators should allow to register a handler function that
is called instead of just dropping the late arriving record.
