Re: [DISCUSS] Dropping flink-storm?


I don't believe that to be the consensus. For starters it is contradictory; we can't /drop /flink-storm yet still /keep //some parts/.

From my understanding we drop flink-storm completely, and put a note in the docs that the bolt/spout wrappers of previous versions will continue to work.

Thanks for opening the issue Chesnay. I think the overall consensus is to drop flink-storm and only keep the Bolt and Spout wrappers. Thanks for your feedback!
