Application mode ignores the pipeline.classpaths configuration

      Description

      我尝试将flink作业以application mode方式提交到kubernetes上运行。但程序的依赖包并不完全存在于local:///opt/flink/usrlib/xxxx.jar中。导致找不到类。

      在yarn上可以工作,是因为我们用 -C http://xxxx 的方式,让依赖可以被URLClassloader加载。

      但我发现,当实验提交到kubernetes时,-C只会在 configmap/flink-conf.yaml 中生成一个pipeline.classpaths 配置条目。我们的main函数可以执行,但是在加载外部依赖类的时候提示找不到类。

      通过阅读源码,我发现运行用户代码的类加载器实际并没有把 pipeline.classpaths 中的条目加入候选URL,这导致了无法加载类的情况。从源码中,我也发现,通过将依赖包放在usrlib目录下(默认的userClassPath)可以解决问题。但我们的依赖可能是动态的,不合适一次性打到镜像里面。

      我提议可以改进这个过程,将pipeline.classpaths也加入到对应的类加载器。这个改动很小,我自己经过测试,可以完美解决问题。

       

       

      English translation:

      I'm trying to submit flink job to kubernetes cluster with application mode, but throw ClassNotFoundException when some dependency class is not shipped in kind of local:///opt/flink/usrlib/xxxx.jar.

      This works on yarn, since we use -C http://xxxx command line style that let dependency class  can be load by URLClassloader.

      But i figure out that not works on kubernetes. When submit to kubernetes cluster, -C is only shipped as item "pipeline.classpaths" in configmap/flink-conf.yaml。

      After read the source code, i find out that the Classloader launching the "main" entry of user code miss consider adding pipeline.classpaths into candidates URLs. from source code, i also learn that we can ship the dependency jar in the usrlib dir to solve the problem. But that failed for us, we are not preferred to ship dependencies in image at compile time, since dependencies are known dynamically in runtime

      I proposed to improve the process, let the Classloader consider usrlib as well as pipeline.classpaths, this is a quite little change. I test the solution and it works quite well
