Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-8175) remove flink-streaming-contrib and migrate its classes to flink-streaming-java/scala
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:56:00 GMT

ASF GitHub Bot commented on FLINK-8175:

Github user StephanEwen commented on the issue:

    I would actually be in favor of dismantling the `flink-streaming-contrib` project.
    We could have a dedicated package `experimental` in `flink-streaming-java` for such code.
The package should have a `package-info.java` clearly stating that this code is not battle
hardened code and may change in future versions. None of the classes should be `@Public`,
might could be be `@PublicEvolving`.

> I propose removing flink-streaming-contrib from flink-contrib, and migrating its classes
to flink-streaming-java/scala for the following reasons:
> - flink-streaming-contrib is so small that it only has 4 classes (3 java and 1 scala),
and they don't need a dedicated jar for Flink to distribute and maintain it and for users
to deal with the overhead of dependency management
> - the 4 classes in flink-streaming-contrib are logically more tied to flink-streaming-java/scala,
and thus can be easily migrated
> - flink-contrib is already too crowded and noisy. It contains lots of sub modules with
different purposes which confuse developers and users, and they lack a proper project hierarchy
> To take a step even forward, I would argue that even flink-contrib should be removed
and all its submodules should be migrated to other top-level modules for the following reasons:
1) Apache Flink the whole project itself is a result of contributions from many developers,
there's no reason to highlight some contributions in a dedicated module named 'contrib' 2)
flink-contrib inherently doesn't have a good hierarchy to hold submodules
