Kafka Connect Concepts

Reading Time: 5 minutes Kafka Connect is a framework to stream data into and out of Apache Kafka. A few major concepts. Connectors – the high-level abstraction that coordinates data streaming by managing tasks Tasks – the implementation of that how data is copied from Kafka Workers – the running processes that execute connectors and tasks Converters – the code used to translate data between Connect and the system sending or receiving data Continue Reading

Getting started with Confluent Hub

Reading Time: 4 minutes As we know, We use connectors to copy data between Apache Kafka and other systems that we want to fetch or send data to. We can download the connector from Confluent Hub. So, in this blog, we will see how we can set up Confluent Hub on our local system. And how we can run confluent services like Kafka, zookeeper, schema registry, etc, etc. The first primary step is, if we have a windows Continue Reading

The architecture of Kafka Connect

Reading Time: 3 minutes Kafka Connect Kafka Connect is an open-source component and framework to get it connected with external systems, including the databases. There are connectors that help to move huge data sets into and out of the Kafka system. Kafka Connect is only used to copy the streamed data, thus its scope is not broad. It executes as an independent process for testing and a distributed, scalable Continue Reading

Kafka connector with MongoDB

Reading Time: 3 minutes The MongoDB Kafka connector is a Confluent-verified connector that persists data from Kafka topics as a data sink into MongoDB as well as publishes changes from MongoDB into Kafka topics as a data source. Apache Kafka The Apache Kafka is an open-source publish/subscribe messaging system. Apache Kafka provides a flexible, fault tolerant, and horizontally scalable system to move data throughout datastores and applications. A system is fault tolerant if the Continue Reading

How to use Kafka Connect to stream data

Reading Time: 2 minutes Overview: In this blog, I am going to discuss how to use Kafka Connect to stream data. In this blog, I’ll be taking an example and then elaborate on it. That example will be based on how can we stream data which is file test.tx to a destination which is also a file, test.sink.txt with the help of Kafka connect. I will be using standalone Continue Reading
