Kafka Adapter for OIC by Daniel Martins Teixeira
The Kafka adapter for Oracle Integration Cloud came out earlier this month, and it was one of the most anticipated releases.
So what is Kafka? You can find all about it on https://kafka.apache.org/, but in a nutshell:
Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with three main key capabilities:
- Publish and subscribe to streams of records.
- Store streams of records in a fault-tolerant durable way.
- Process streams of records as they occur.
Kafka is run as a cluster on one or more servers that can span multiple data centres. The Kafka cluster stores streams of records in categories called topics, and each record consists of a key, a value, and a timestamp.
Kafka Adapter Capabilities
The Apache Kafka Adapter enables you to create an integration in Oracle Integration that connects to an Apache Kafka messaging system for the publishing and consumption of messages from a Kafka topic.
These are some of the Apache Kafka Adapter benefits:
- Consumes messages from a Kafka topic and produces messages to a Kafka topic.
- Enables you to browse the available metadata using the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard (that is, the topics and partitions to which messages are published and consumed).
- Supports a consumer group. Read the complete article here.
