Hi Stavros,

Queryable state is definitely on the roadmap! We will revamp the StateStore API a bit, and a queryable StateStore is definitely one of the things we are thinking about during that revamp.

Best,
Burak

Just to re-phrase my question: Would query-able state make a viable SPIP?

Hi,

Maybe this has been discussed before. Given the fact that many streaming apps out there use state extensively, could be a good idea to make Spark expose streaming state with an external API like other systems do (Kafka streams, Flink etc), in order to facilitate interactive queries?
