I am running into a type erasure problem which only occurs when I
execute the code using a Flink cluster (1.1.2). I created a Gist 
which reproduces the problem. I also added a unit test to show that it
does not fail in local and collection mode.
Maybe it is also interesting to mention that - in my actual code - I
manually created a TypeInformation (the same which is automatically
created on local execution) and gave it to the operators using
.returns(..). However, this lead to the issue, that my field forwarding
annotations failed with invalid reference exceptions (the same
annotations that work locally).
The issue came up after I generalized the core of one our algorithms.
Before, when the types were non-generic, this ran without problems
locally and on the cluster.
Thanks in advance!
The exception in the Gist case:
The return type of function 'withPojo(Problem.java:58)' could not be
determined automatically, due to type erasure. You can give type
information hints by using the returns(...) method on the result of the
transformation call, or by letting your function implement the
