As a newcomer to Apache Flink one of the first things I did was join the Slack community (which is vendor-neutral and controlled by the Flink PMC). At the moment I’m pretty much in full-time lurker mode, soaking up the kind of questions that people have and how they’re using Flink.
One question that caught my eye was from Marco Villalobos, in which he asked about the Flink JDBC driver and a
SQLDataException he was getting with a particular datatype. Now, unfortunately, I have no idea about the answer to this question—but the idea of a JDBC driver through which Flink SQL could be run sounded like a fascinating path to follow after previously looking at the SQL Client.
