Subject Re: Reprocessing failed jobs in Streaming job
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 20:16:47 GMT
Personally I think forcing the stream to fail (e.g. check offsets in
downstream store and throw exception if they aren't as expected) is
the safest thing to do.

If you proceed after a failure, you need a place to reliably record
the batches that failed for later processing.
