Spring Integration Adapter for Apache Kafka
The Spring Integration for Apache Kafka extension project provides inbound and outbound channel adapters and gateways for Apache Kafka. Apache Kafka is a distributed publish-subscribe messaging system that is designed for high throughput (terabytes of data) and low latency (milliseconds). For more information on Kafka and its design goals, see the Kafka main page.
Starting from version 2.0 version this project is a complete rewrite based on the new
spring-kafka project which uses the pure java "new"
Consumer clients provided by Kafka.
See the Spring Integration kafka Sample for a simple Spring Boot application that sends and receives messages.
