Structured Streaming in 2.0 is declared as alpha - plenty of bits still missing:
I assume that it will be declared stable / GA in a future 2.x release, and then it will co-exist with DStream for quite a while before someone will suggest to start a deprecation process that will eventually lead to its removal...
As a user, I guess we will need to apply judgement about when to switch to Structured Streaming - each of us have a different risk/value tradeoff, based on our specific situation...

Hi guys

Structure Stream is coming with spark 2.0,  but I noticed that DStream is still here

What's the future of the DStream, will it be deprecated and removed eventually? Or co-existed with  Structure Stream forever?
