Foreign Stream

A schema object that is a stream defined - using CREATE FOREIGN STREAM - in the context of a schema and associated with a server. A foreign stream is an instance of a foreign data wrapper to provide access within SQLstream to a flow of data either from or to an external system. For example, the Extensible Common Data Adapter supports the creation of a foreign stream that reads data from the file system, network sockets, AMQP, Kafka, Kinesis, and so on.
