Re: SQL Client Limitations

Hi Eron,

yes, FLINK-9172 covers how the SQL Client will discover ExternalCatalog similar to how it discovers connectors and formats today. The exact design has to be fleshed out but the SQL Client's environment file will declare catalogs and their properties. The SQL Client's gateway will then perform the communication to external systems.

I'd like to better understand how catalogs will work in SQL Client.   I assume we'll be able to reference catalog classes from the environment file (e.g. FLINK-9172).

    Hi Dominik,

    The SQL Client supports the same subset of SQL that you get with
    Java /
    Scala embedded queries.
    The documentation [1] covers all supported operations.

    There are some limitations because certain operators require
    special time
    attributes (row time or processing time attributes) which are
    Some operators such as a regular join (in contrast to a
    time-windowed join)
    remove the monotonicity property of time attributes such that
    operations cannot be applied anymore.
