Re: Looking for relevant sources related to connecting Apache Flink and Edgent.

thanks Kostas for the quick reply,

yes. It is related to my previous question.

When you said "But if you know what operation to push down" -> This is what
I am trying to search on Flink code. I want to know the operation on the
The component on Flink that will say to me that there is a filter on the
query specified by the user. I want to get this metadata and send a message
to my RPi through a Flink connector (I guess this is the way to do) and the
data stream will come to Flink already filtered.

I intend to start with a simple and naive example. Do you know which
component on Flink I can get the operations on the fly that are
running inside a query?
