Marton Balassi announces support for FlinkSQL in Cloudera Streaming Analytics:
Our 126.96.36.199 release of Cloudera Streaming Analytics Powered by Apache Flink brings a wide range of new functionality, including support for lineage and metadata tracking via Apache Atlas, support for connecting to Apache Kudu and the first iteration of the much-awaited FlinkSQL API.
Flink’s SQL interface democratizes stream processing, as it caters to a much larger community than the currently widely used Java and Scala APIs focusing on the Data Engineering crowd. Generalizing SQL to stream processing and streaming analytics use cases poses a set of challenges: we have to tackle expressing infinite streams and timeliness of records.
All is happening as Feasel’s Law foretold.
