Passing Schema Registry URL twice to instantiate KafkaAvroSerializer #877

In some scenarios, some wrapping libraries require to instantiate KafkaAvroSerializer explicitly (e.g. Kafka Streams, Akka Streams):

final Map<String, Object> schemaRegistryConfigs = new HashMap<>();
final KafkaAvroSerializer kafkaAvroSerializer = new KafkaAvroSerializer(schemaRegistryClient);
    kafkaAvroSerializer.configure(schemaRegistryConfigs, false);

So, schemaRegistryClient can be mocked on unit-tests, etc.

The issue is that you have to set Schema Registry URL to instantiate CachedSchemaRegistryClient
But also, to schemaRegistryConfigs. If not, it will fail when configuring kafkaAvroSerializer, here: if URL is not set on configs, validation fails:

Caused by: io.confluent.common.config.ConfigException: Missing required configuration "schema.registry.url" which has no default value.

Is there any way to make this a bit more friendly and pass URL only once?

I had exactly the same issue but in my case application started, was able to query schema registry but it didn't auto create a schema for value serialization when using Kafka producer so the issue was very hard to discover.
Please note that the validation mentioned by @jeqo didn't work or at least allow to run application in my case (no fail fast).
