Thanks for your explanation ... helps a lot :-)
I wasn't suggesting that we immediately jump on this. Much more I thought this
would be a great thing for someone involved with Kafka or at least a lot of
Kafka knowledge to jump in. After all we're trying to get as many new people on
Kafka Connect is the ability to run a "source" and/or "sink" of streaming
data on the Kafka instance itself. It defines the APIs so people can
include the component (and its configuration) from the command-line. Part
of the Kafka Connect component are Key and Value serialization, and in
I came across a presentation by coincidence that mentioned "Kafka Connect",
so I will research this over the weekend and see what it is, and how it
fits with PLC4X. The presenter only mentioned that a "Kafka Connect"
component is enable by configuration (in Kafka was implied but not sure)
Alright... So to repeat (and I think you get this much)... Kafka is in
principle very simple; Put any byte array into a topic in one end, and
readers can get that byte array from that topic somewhere else. Just a
simple message queue, at an abstract level. And the Kafka client libraries
have to admit I don't know in detail either ... it was part of a talk a
colleague of mine held at a Kafka meetup in our office. Also I'm not into Kafka
half as deep as you ... from a user point of view it looked as if such a Kafka
Connect adapter would be a good idea. I'm trying to

I have some Kafka experience, but not used Kafka Streams. But I think the
most straight forward approach would still be to have a Kafka Producer on
the PLC4X side simply writing to one or more Kafka topics, which is
You need to 'configure' during the instance creation;
last week I attended the Kafka meetup of a colleague of mine and in his talk he
introduced Kafka Streams and to me it sounded like a „Clustered Edgent“.
My second thought was: would it not be cool to implement such a Kafka Stream
Anyone here got the knowhow to do that?
