Till Rohrmann commented on FLINK-3318:
--------------------------------------

Hi [~ivan.mushketyk],

yes I think we need some API calls which let you specify for a node how often it can appear.
I think you're proposal looks good, but I would not let the quantifier calls take as a parameter
the filter conditions.

{code}
Pattern.begin("start").optional().followedBy("next").where(...).times(1, 3).next("end").subtype(...).every()
{code}

> It would be a good addition to extend the pattern API to support quantifiers known from
regular expressions (e.g. Kleene star, ?, +, or count bounds). This would considerably enrich
the set of supported patterns.
> Implementing the count bounds could be done by unrolling the pattern state. In order
to support the Kleene star operator, the {{NFACompiler}} has to be extended to insert epsilon-transition
between a Kleene start state and the succeeding pattern state. In order to support {{?}},
one could insert two paths from the preceding state, one which accepts the event and another
which directly goes into the next pattern state.
