Continuous SQL is using Structured Query Language (SQL) to create computations against unbounded streams of data, and show the results in a persistent storage. The result stored in a persistent storage can be connected to other applications to have an analytical visualization of your data. Compared to traditional SQL, in Continuous SQL the data has a start, but no end. This means that queries continuously process results to a sink or other target types. When you define your job in SQL, the SQL statement is interpreted and validated against a schema. After the statement is executed, the results that match the criteria are continuously returned.
