createComparator fails on case class with Unit type fields prior to the join-key

    Details

      Description

      Overview

      When joining between case classes, if the attribute representing the join-key comes after Unit definition of fields (that are not being used) the join will fail with the error

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Could not add a comparator for the logicalkey field index 0.
      {{ at org.apache.flink.api.common.typeutils.CompositeType.createComparator(CompositeType.java:162)}}
      {{ at org.apache.flink.optimizer.postpass.JavaApiPostPass.createComparator(JavaApiPostPass.java:293)}}
      {{ at org.apache.flink.optimizer.postpass.JavaApiPostPass.traverse(JavaApiPostPass.java:193)}}

      Using TypeInformation keys does not exhibit the same issue. Initial debugging suggests that when calculating the index of the key for strings, Flink doesn't count Unit elements, however they are included during iteration in CompositeType.createComparator which leads to the search failing on the key appearing to be a Unit type.
