Currently in Kafka Streams the state store names are hidden in the DSL. This JIRA proposes to make them visible to the DSL, so that developers can subsequently query them. Sequence of steps:
- Explicitly require names for all operations that create a state store, like aggregate.
- Explicitly require names for all created KTables (thus their changelog state stores)
- Materialize all KTables (today some KTables are materialized and some are not)
