The Spark Streaming integration for Kafka 0.10 is similar in design to the 0.8 Direct Stream approach. It provides simple parallelism, 1:1 correspondence between Kafka partitions and Spark partitions, and access to offsets and metadata. However, because the newer integration uses the new Kafka consumer API instead of the simple API, there are notable differences in usage. This version of the integration is marked as experimental, so the API is potentially subject to change.
In this blog, I am going to implement the basic example on Spark Structured Streaming & Kafka Integration.
Here, I am using
- Apache Spark 2.2.0
- Apache Kafka 0.11.0.1
- Scala 2.11.8
Create the built.sbt
Let’s create a sbt project and add following dependencies in build.sbt.
libraryDependencies ++= Seq("org.apache.spark" % "spark-sql_2.11" % "2.2.0", "org.apache.spark" % "spark-sql-kafka-0-10_2.11" % "2.2.0", "org.apache.kafka" % "kafka-clients" % "0.11.0.1")
Create the SparkSession
Now, we have to import the necessary classes and create a local SparkSession, the starting point of all functionalities in Spark.
val spark = SparkSession .builder .appName("Spark-Kafka-Integration") .master("local") .getOrCreate()
Define the Schema
We have to define the schema for our data that we are going to read from csv.
val mySchema = StructType(Array( StructField("id", IntegerType), StructField("name", StringType), StructField("year", IntegerType), StructField("rating", DoubleType), StructField("duration", IntegerType) ))
Create the Streaming Dataframe
Now, we have to create a streaming DataFrame whose schema is defined in a variable called “mySchema”. If you drop any csv file into dir that will automatically change into the streaming dataframe.
val streamingDataFrame = spark.readStream.schema(mySchema).csv("path of your directory like home/Desktop/dir/")
Publish the stream to Kafka
streamingDataFrame.selectExpr("CAST(id AS STRING) AS key", "to_json(struct(*)) AS value"). writeStream .format("kafka") .option("topic", "topicName") .option("kafka.bootstrap.servers", "localhost:9092") .option("checkpointLocation", "path to your local dir") .start()
Create the topic called ‘topicName’ for Kafka and send dataframe with that topic to Kafka. Here, 9092 is the port number of the local system on which Kafka in running. We use checkpointLocation to create the offsets about the stream.
Subscribe the stream from Kafka
val df = spark .readStream .format("kafka") .option("kafka.bootstrap.servers", "localhost:9092") .option("subscribe", "topicName") .load()
At this point, we just subscribe our stream from kafka with same topic name that we gave above.
Convert Stream according to my schema along with TimeStamp
val df1 = df.selectExpr("CAST(value AS STRING)", "CAST(timestamp AS TIMESTAMP)").as[(String, Timestamp)] .select(from_json($"value", mySchema).as("data"), $"timestamp") .select("data.*", "timestamp")
Here, we convert the data that is coming in Stream from kafka to Json & from Json we just create the dataframe as per our need described schema in ‘mySchema’. We also take timestamp column to it.
Print the dataframe on console
Here, we just print our data to the console.
df1.writeStream .format("console") .option("truncate","false") .start() .awaitTermination()
