Simple example for reading and writing into Kafka

Set up Kafka

#get kafka
wget http://mirror.softaculous.com/apache//kafka/0.8.2.1/kafka_2.10-0.8.2.1.tgz
# unpack
tar xf kafka_2.10-0.8.2.1.tgz
cd kafka_2.10-0.8.2.1

# start zookeeper server
./bin/zookeeper-server-start.sh ./config/zookeeper.properties

# start broker
./bin/kafka-server-start.sh ./config/server.properties 

# create topic “test”
 ./bin/kafka-topics.sh --create --topic test --zookeeper localhost:2181 --partitions 1 --replication-factor 1

# consume from the topic using the console producer
./bin/kafka-console-consumer.sh --topic test --zookeeper localhost:2181

# produce something into the topic (write something and hit enter)
./bin/kafka-console-producer.sh --topic test --broker-list localhost:9092
