    - Support for base64 encoded byte arrays
    - Nested support
    ## Brief change log
    - New module `flink-json` in `flink-formats`
    - New JsonSchemaConverter

>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 1.5.0
> To support (FLINK-8558), we need to generate a \{{TypeInformation}} from a 
> standard [JSON schema|http://json-schema.org/] (and maybe vice verse). There 
> are some problems to be discussed, e.g., how to handle JSON {{Number}} type. 
> One option would be we always return a specific type, which can be configured 
> to be double or BigDecimal, for it.
