[DISCUSS] Dropping flink-storm?
I would like to discuss how to proceed with Flink's storm compatibility
While working on removing Flink's legacy mode, I noticed that some parts of
flink-storm rely on the legacy Flink client. In fact, at the moment
flink-storm does not work together with Flink's new distributed
I'm also wondering how many people are actually using Flink's Storm
compatibility layer and whether it would be worth porting it.
I see two options how to proceed:
1) Commit to maintain flink-storm and port it to Flink's new architecture
2) Drop flink-storm
I doubt that we can contribute it to Apache Bahir , because once we
remove the legacy mode, this module will no longer work with all newer
Therefore, I would like to hear your opinion on this and in particular if
you are using or planning to use flink-storm in the future.
