The idea of this tutorial is to get you started as quickly as possible. Therefore I setup a Github repository. There you can find sample Maven projects which can serve you as templates for your own projects.
At the moment I provide templates for the following use cases:
Each project has two main folders: commons and flink.
In the commons folder you put your schema definition IDL file. The Maven
commons/pom.xml is configured to build classes from the IDL file during compilation. This makes development more convenient, because you don't need to recompile the IDL file by hand whenever there is any minor change in your schema.
In the flink folder there are your Flink jobs which read and write Parquet.
So choose your template project, download the corresponding folder and run:
$ mvn clean install package
