    Hi @lincoln-lil, I think we can continue with this PR. Nobody raised 
concerns on the dev ML.
    
    Thank you, Fabian


> Extend TableAPI Support Sink Table Registration and ‘insert into’ Clause in

>                 Key: FLINK-6442

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Table API & SQL

> Currently in TableAPI  there’s only registration method for source table,  
> when we use SQL writing a streaming job, we should add additional part for 
> the sink, like TableAPI does:
> {code}
> val sqlQuery = "SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE _1 = 3"
> val t = StreamTestData.getSmall3TupleDataStream(env)
> tEnv.registerDataStream("MyTable", t)
> // one way: invoke tableAPI’s writeToSink method directly
> val result = tEnv.sql(sqlQuery)
> result.writeToSink(new YourStreamSink)
> // another way: convert to datastream first and then invoke addSink 
> val result = tEnv.sql(sqlQuery).toDataStream[Row]
> result.addSink(new StreamITCase.StringSink)
> {code}
> From the api we can see the sink table always be a derived table because its 
> 'schema' is inferred from the result type of upstream query.
> Compare to traditional RDBMS which support DML syntax, a query with a target 
> output could be written like this:
> {code}
> insert into table target_table_name
> [(column_name [ ,...n ])]
> query
> {code}
> The equivalent form of the example above is as follows:
> {code}
>     tEnv.registerTableSink("targetTable", new YourSink)
>     val sql = "INSERT INTO targetTable SELECT a, b, c FROM sourceTable"
>     val result = tEnv.sql(sql)
> {code}
> It is supported by Calcite’s grammar: 
> {code}
>  insert:( INSERT | UPSERT ) INTO tablePrimary
>  [ '(' column [, column ]* ')' ]
>  query
> {code}
> I'd like to extend Flink TableAPI to support such feature.  see design doc:
