Table 2-1 caption, and preceding paragraph

References to "second window" should be "fourth window", which corresponds to event-time range [12:06, 12:08).

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct, the references to "second window" in the Table 2-1 caption and the preceding paragraph should both be updated to "fourth window". Thank you!

second paragraph

The text says: A pipeline with unaligned delays might look like Example 2-4, but Example 2-4 is an example of *aligned* delays.

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. The text that reads "A pipeline with unaligned delays might look like Example 2-4" should be updated to read "A pipeline with aligned delays might look like Example 2-4". Thank you!

Second paragraph

"Figure 2-15 combines the final frames of Figures 2-9, 2-11 (heuristic only), and 2-14..." Should be "... Figures 2-13, 2-11 (heuristic only), and 2-14..."

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct, "Figures 2-9, 2-11 (heuristic only), and 2-14" should be updated to read "Figures 2-13, 2-11 (heuristic only), and 2-14". Thank you!

example 2-7 / Figure 2-11

The early 3 in the third window needs to be a 4. This graphic is also published here: streamingsystems_dot_net/fig/2-15

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. I will render an updated figure for a future revision. Thank you!

Chapter 2: When: Early/OnTime/Late TRiggers FTW

The books says: ... A SINGLE on-time pane, which is the result of the completeness/watermark trigger firing after the watermark passes the end of the window. ... However, the Figure 2-11 does not reflect this: there are multiple windows with 0 (zero) on-time panes! It is either wrong in theory or (probably) an error in the Fig 2-11.

Note from the Author or Editor:
You're right, the text and figure are inconsistent. The reason for that is historical: when I made these figures originally, I only included on-time panes that contained updated values; if an on-time pane would have had the same value as a previous early pane, it was elided for clarity and brevity. Beam in fact always gives an on-time pane, which are the semantics I captured in the text description. Given how many figures would need to change if we wanted to switch to always having on-time panes for every window, I think it's best just to make the text match the figure. "A single on-time pane" should be updated to read "At most one on-time pane".

Figure 3-2 Windowed summation with perfect (left) and heuristic (right) watermarks

Sumation for perfect watermark gives value "10" for elements with value "5" and "9". Shouldn't be the sum give the result "14" instead of "10"?

Note from the Author or Editor:
That is correct. I will render an updated Figure 3-2 for a future revision. Thanks for calling that out!

last line of only paragraph

The text says "... the final results for the four windows remain the same: 14, 18, 3, 12." It should be "14, 18, 4, 12" which matches the results in Figure 4-2.

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. "14, 18, 3, 12" should be updated to read "14, 18, 4, 12". Thank you!

Example 4-1

Should read TWO_MINUTES to match Figure 4-3 (and the rest of the chapter)

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct, Example 4-1 should be updated to say "TWO_MINUTES" instead of "ONE_MINUTE" in the example trigger. Thank you!

Example 4-6

There are two errors in this code example: When computing perKeyShift, 'size' should be 'size.getMillis()' When computing start, the subtracted value needs to include the '.getMillis() % size.getMillis()' which was part of Example 4-4

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. In Example 4-6, two updates are needed: 1. "hash(c.element().key()) % size" should be updated to read "hash(c.element().key()) % size.getMillis()" 2. After the line reading ".minus(offset)", a new line reading ".getMillis() % size.getMillis();" should be added, left aligned with the line above it, as found in Example 4-4. Thank you! Thank you!

Example 4-8, first line

'>' has been erroneously escaped as '%gt;'

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. "%gt;" in Example 4-8 should be fixed to render as ">". Thank you!

Example 4-9

There doesn't seem to be any point to passing TWO_MINUTES into the PerElementFixedWindows strategy (unless it serves as a default value, in which case that should probably be explicitly called out).

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. In Example 4-9, "PerElementFixedWindows.of(TWO_MINUTES)" should be changed to read "new PerElementFixedWindows()", with yellow highlighting on "new PerElement" and the trailing "()". Thank you!

3rd paragraph under "Stream-and-table basics or: xxxxx"

The sentence states "But how to do we create a stream from a table?" It should be "But how do we create xxxx". There's grammar error with the additional "to"

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct, "But how to do we create a stream" should be changed to "But how do we create a stream". Thank you!

top of the page in the table

The table demoing the join is using the wrong keys in the result. I suspect this is a typo. The items in the R column should start with R not L.

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct. The values of L2, L3, and L4 in the R columns for that SQL listing should be updated to R2, R3, and R4 respectively. Thank you!

table

It seems in the fifth table of the TVR, the Rate Window should be [12:00, 12:06) for the new row since the new rate record hasn't arrived yet. Definitely LMK if you think I misunderstood the table!

Note from the Author or Editor:
You are correct, the rate window for the highlighted row in the fifth pane of the TVR (the one with time range [12:08:00, 12:09:07)) should be changed from "[12:03, 12:06)" to "[12:00, 12:06)". Thanks for catching that!
