> Update: The motivation is 1) enabling users to set a read start position for files, so
they can process files that are modified after a given timestamp 2) expose more file information
to users and providing them with a more flexible file filter interface to define their own
filtering rules
> ---------------
> support filtering files by modified/created time in {{StreamExecutionEnvironment.readFile()}}
> for example, in a source dir with lots of file, we only want to read files that is created
or modified after a specific time.
> This API can expose a generic filter function of files, and let users define filtering
rules. Currently Flink only supports filtering files by path. What this means is that, currently the
API is {{FileInputFormat.setFilesFilters(PathFiter)}} that takes only one file path filter. A
more generic API that can take more filters can look like this 1) {{FileInputFormat.setFilesFilters(List
(PathFiter, ModifiedTileFilter, ... ))}}
> 2) or {{FileInputFormat.setFilesFilters(FileFiter),}} and {{FileFilter}} exposes all
file attributes that Flink's file system can provide, like path and modified time
> I lean towards the 2nd option, because it gives users more flexibility to define complex
filtering rules based on combinations of file attributes.
