Re: [DISCUSS] Support Interactive Programming in Flink Table API

Hi Becket,

I think the Flink Service is a good abstraction, with which we can easily
build Interactive Programing or some other features.
We might bring the concept of 'Session', then we can think of Flink
Services as system processes and user jobs as user processes, so the
management of life cycle need to be discussed.

Kind Regards
