Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-2692) Untangle CsvInputFormat into PojoTypeCsvInputFormat and TupleTypeCsvInputFormat

Till Rohrmann commented on FLINK-2692:
--------------------------------------

No it does not refer to {{org.apache.flink.api.java.record.io.CsvInputFormat}}, which will
hopefully soon be removed, but to the {{org.apache.flink.api.java.io.CsvInputFormat}}.

> The {{CsvInputFormat}} currently allows to return values as a {{Tuple}} or a {{Pojo}}
type. As a consequence, the processing logic, which has to work for both types, is overly
complex. For example, the {{CsvInputFormat}} contains fields which are only used when a Pojo
is returned. Moreover, the pojo field information are constructed by calling setter methods
which have to be called in a very specific order, otherwise they fail. E.g. one first has
to call {{setFieldTypes}} before calling {{setOrderOfPOJOFields}}, otherwise the number of
fields might be different. Furthermore, some of the methods can only be called if the return
type is a {{Pojo}} type, because they expect that a {{PojoTypeInfo}} is present.
> I think the {{CsvInputFormat}} should be refactored to make the code more easily maintainable.
I propose to split it up into a {{PojoTypeCsvInputFormat}} and a {{TupleTypeCsvInputFormat}}
which take all the required information via their constructors instead of using the {{setFields}}
and {{setOrderOfPOJOFields}} approach.
