Re: Always trigger calculation of a tumble window in Flink SQL
You might come up with some magical self join that could do the trick - join/window join the the aggregation result with self and then aggregate it again. I don’t know if that’s possible (probably you would need to write custom aggregate function) and would be inefficient. It will be easier to convert result of your SQL query into a DataStream and process it with a simple/custom DataStream operator.
