A beautiful marriage between Storm and Kafka. Seriously though, this library will let you use Kafka as a spout within Storm. It is based on the storm-kestrel spout but in the end, don't share too much in common.
See the javadoc of the KafkaSpout for details. The biggest thing to note is that the current implementation does not guarantee reliability in the Storm topology.
