Apache Flink: Kafka connector in Python streaming API, “Cannot load user class”


Hey all, 

Thank you so much for your efforts. I've already posted this question on stack overflow, but thought I should ask here as well.

I am trying out Flink's new Python streaming API and attempting to run my script with ./flink-1.6.1/bin/pyflink-stream.sh examples/read_from_kafka.py. The python script is fairly straightforward, I am just trying to consume from an existing topic and send everything to stdout (or the *.out file in the log directory where the output method emits data by default).

import glob

import os

import sys

from java.util import Properties

from org.apache.flink.streaming.api.functions.source import SourceFunction

from org.apache.flink.streaming.api.collector.selector import OutputSelector

from org.apache.flink.api.common.serialization import SimpleStringSchema


directories=['/home/user/flink/flink-1.6.1/lib']

for directory in directories:

    for jar in glob.glob(os.path.join(directory,'*.jar')):

                sys.path.append(jar)


from org.apache.flink.streaming.connectors.kafka import FlinkKafkaConsumer09


props = Properties()

config = {"bootstrap_servers": "localhost:9092",

          "group_id": "flink_test",

          "topics": ["TopicCategory-TopicName"]}

props.setProperty("bootstrap.servers", config['bootstrap_servers'])

props.setProperty("group_id", config['group_id'])

props.setProperty("zookeeper.connect", "localhost:2181")


def main(factory):

    consumer = FlinkKafkaConsumer09([config["topics"]], SimpleStringSchema(), props)


    env = factory.get_execution_environment()

    env.add_java_source(consumer) \

        .output()

    env.execute()


I grabbed a handful of jar files from the maven repos, namely flink-connector-kafka-0.9_2.11-1.6.1.jarflink-connector-kafka-base_2.11-1.6.1.jar and kafka-clients-0.9.0.1.jarand copied them in Flink's lib directory. Unless I misunderstood the documentation, this should suffice for Flink to load the kafka connector. Indeed, if I remove any of these jars the import fails, but this doesn't seem to be enough to actually invoke the plan. Adding a for loop to dynamically add these to sys.path didn't work either. Here's what gets printed in the console:

The program didn't contain a Flink job. Perhaps you forgot to call execute() on the execution environment.


This is what I see in the logs:

Is there a way to fix this and make the connector available to Python?

Many thanks,
