[jira] [Created] (FLINK-10958) Add overload support for user defined function


Dian Fu created FLINK-10958:
-------------------------------

             Summary: Add overload support for user defined function 
                 Key: FLINK-10958
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10958
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Table API & SQL
            Reporter: Dian Fu
            Assignee: Dian Fu


Currently overload is not supported in user defined function and given the following UDF
{code:java}
class Func21 extends ScalarFunction {
  def eval(p: People): String = {
    p.name
  }

  def eval(p: Student): String = {
    "student#" + p.name
  }
}

class People(val name: String)

class Student(name: String) extends People(name)

class GraduatedStudent(name: String) extends Student(name)
{code}
Queries such as the following will compile failed with error msg "Found multiple 'eval' methods which match the signature."

 
{code:java}
val udf = new Func21
val table = ...
table.select(udf(new GraduatedStudent("test"))) {code}
That's because overload is not supported in user defined function currently. I think it will make sense to support overload following the java language specification in section [15.2|https://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jls/se7/html/jls-15.html#jls-15.12].
