    @atsikiridis I haven't tested your use case but I think calling TypeExtractor.createTypeInfo(Class,
Class, int, null, null) should work.

> In order to support a compact syntax with Java 8 Lambdas, we would need to change the
types of the functions to Single Abstract Method types (SAMs). Only those can be implemented
by Lambdas.
> That means that DataSet.map(MapFunction) would accept an interface MapFunction, not the
abstract class that we use now. Many UDFs would not inherit form `AbstractFunction` any more.
The inheritance from AbstractFunction would be optional, if life cycle methods (open / close)
and runtime contexts are needed.
> This may have also implications on the type extraction, as the generic parameters are
in generic superinterfaces, rather than in generic superclasses.
