    Description

      The FileSource documentation contains sentences like:

       * <p>When you start creating a file source (via the {@link FileSource.FileSourceBuilder} created
       * through one of the above-mentioned methods) the source is by default in bounded/batch mode. Call
       * {@link FileSource.FileSourceBuilder#monitorContinuously(Duration)} to put the source into
       * continuous streaming mode.
      

      The word "mode" causes confusion when compared to batch and streaming execution mode. Sources and sinks should not care about runtime modes, they can be configured to deal with either bounded or unbounded data. This should be cleaned-up/rewritten.
