VR- transformed value type
public interface ValueTransformer<V,VR>
ValueTransformerinterface for stateful mapping of a value to a new value (with possible new type). This is a stateful record-by-record operation, i.e,
transform(Object)is invoked individually for each record of a stream and can access and modify a state that is available beyond a single call of
ValueMapperfor stateless value transformation). Additionally, this

called periodicallywith the provided context. If
ValueTransformeris applied to a
KeyValuepair record the record's key is preserved.

ValueTransformer to Kafka Stream's runtime.
If a record's key and value should be modified
Transformer can be used.
