Apache Flink® — Stateful Computations over Data Streams
In a previous post, we introduced the basics of Flink on Zeppelin and how to do Streaming ETL. In this second part of the “Flink on Zeppelin” series of posts, I will share how to perform streaming data visualization via Flink on Zeppelin and how to use Apache Flink UDFs in Zeppelin.
The latest release of Apache Zeppelin comes with a redesigned interpreter for Apache Flink (version Flink 1.10+ is only supported moving forward) that allows developers to use Flink directly on Zeppelin notebooks for interactive data analysis. I wrote 2 posts about how to use Flink in Zeppelin. This is part-1 where I explain how the Flink interpreter in Zeppelin works, and provide a tutorial for running Streaming ETL with Flink on Zeppelin.
The Apache Flink community is happy to announce the release of Stateful Functions (StateFun) 2.1.0! This release introduces new features around state expiration and performance improvements for co-located deployments, as well as other important changes that improve the stability and testability of the project. As the community around StateFun grows, the release cycle will follow this pattern of smaller and more frequent releases to incorporate user feedback and allow for faster iteration.
