             Summary: Create SQL Client dependencies
                 Key: FLINK-8831
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8831
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Table API & SQL
            Reporter: Timo Walther
            Assignee: Timo Walther

A first minimum version of FLIP-24 for the upcoming 
Flink SQL Client has been merged to the master. We also merged 
possibilities to discover and configure table sources without a single 
line of code using string-based properties and Java service provider 

We are now facing the issue of how to manage dependencies in this new 
environment. It is different from how regular Flink projects are created 
(by setting up a a new Maven project and build a jar or fat jar). 
Ideally, a user should be able to select from a set of prepared 
connectors, catalogs, and formats. E.g., if a Kafka connector and Avro 
format is needed, all that should be required is to move a 
"flink-kafka.jar" and "flink-avro.jar" into the "sql_lib" directory that 
is shipped to a Flink cluster together with the SQL query.

[As discussed on 
 we will build fat jars for these modules with every Flink release that can be 
hostet somewhere (e.g. Apache infrastructure, but not Maven central). This 
would make it very easy to add a dependency by downloading the prepared JAR
