Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-170) Session windows should not be identified by their bounds
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2016 22:29:25 GMT


Luke Cwik commented on BEAM-170:

Don't session windows need another key of some kind?
So timestamps + key defines equality.

> Today, if two session windows have the same bounds, they are considered the same window.
This is an accident. It is not intended that any session windows are considered equal except
via the operation of merging them into the same session.
> A risk associated with this behavior is that two windows that happen to coincide will
share per-window-and-key state rather than evolving separately and having their separate state
reconciled by state merging logic. These code paths are not required to be coherent, and in
practice they are not.
> In particular, if the trigger for a session window ever finishes, then subsequent data
in a window with the same bounds will be dropped, whereas if it had differed by a millisecond
it would have created a new session, ignoring the previously closed session.
