Re: MapWithState for two keyed stream
CoRichFlatMap or union will work. If you need to know which is historical the flatmap will be better as you can tell which stream it cam from. But, be careful about reading historical data and trying to process it all before processing the new data. That can lead to buffering a lot of incoming data while processing the historical data.

The idea would be to read historical data from HDFS along with the live stream from Kafka and based on some business write the output to the sink in correct update order?
