LOAD Statements
This documentation is for an unreleased version of Apache Flink. We recommend you use the latest stable version.

LOAD Statements #

LOAD statements are used to load a built-in or user-defined module.

Run a LOAD statement #

LOAD statements can be executed with the executeSql() method of the TableEnvironment. The executeSql() method returns ‘OK’ for a successful LOAD operation; otherwise, it will throw an exception.

The following examples show how to run a LOAD statement in TableEnvironment.

LOAD MODULE #

The following grammar gives an overview of the available syntax:

LOAD MODULE module_name [WITH ('key1' = 'val1', 'key2' = 'val2', ...)]
module_name is a simple identifier. It is case-sensitive and should be identical to the module type defined in the module factory because it is used to perform module discovery. Properties ('key1' = 'val1', 'key2' = 'val2', ...) is a map that contains a set of key-value pairs (except for the key 'type') and passed to the discovery service to instantiate the corresponding module.
