Hi all, My application will emit log files in avro json encoding so that humans easily can read and grep records. I need to transfer this logs into Kafka as Avro binary encoding. And I want to use confluent schema registry in order to prepare schema evolution.
After some research, I think Kafka connect in standalone mode might be the easiest solution. The avro-converter included in kafka connect interacts with schema registry under the hood. But I am not sure avro-converter accepts Avro json encoding as input. Do I need to create a json-encoding version of the avro-converter? And I don't find a documentation of Converter interface. I think converting job is just byte to byte job, but the interface seems to require internal data object. http://docs.confluent.io/3.0.1/connect/javadocs/index.html?org/apache/kafka/connect/storage/Converter.html Any advise or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
