Re: [DISCUSS] Adding new interfaces in [Stream]ExecutionEnvironment


I see Shuyi's point that it would nice to allow adding jar files which
should be part of the user code classloader programmatically. Actually, we
expose this functionality in the `RemoteEnvironment` where you can specify
additional jars which shall be shipped to the cluster in the constructor. I
assume that is exactly the functionality you are looking for. In that
sense, it might be an API inconsistency that we allow it for some cases and
for others not.

But I could also see that the whole functionality of dynamically loading
jars at runtime could also perfectly live in the `UdfSqlOperator`. This, of
course, would entail that one has to take care of clean up of the
downloaded resources. But it should be possible to first download the
resources and create a custom URLClassLoader at startup and then use this
class loader when calling into the UDF.

Cheers,
Till
