NOTE: The use of the NonForwardedFields annotation is optional. If used correctly, it can help the Flink optimizer to generate more efficient execution plans. However if used incorrectly, it can cause invalid plan choices and the computation of wrong results! Since all not declared fields are considered to be forwarded, it is required that ALL non-forwarded fields are declared.
Non-forwarded fields are declared as a list of field expressions, e.g.,
declares that the second and fourth field of a Java tuple are modified and all other fields are are not changed and remain
on their position. A NonForwardedFields annotation can only be used on functions where the type of the input and output are identical.
Multiple non-forwarded fields can be annotated in one (
or separate Strings (

Function or Flink's documentation for
