Apache Kafka bridge

This project provides a software component which acts as a bridge between different standard protocols and an Apache Kafka cluster. The available protocols are:

It provides a different way to interact with Apache Kafka because the latter natively supports only a custom (proprietary) protocol. Thanks to the bridge, all clients which can speak different standard protocols can connect to Apache Kafka cluster in order to send and receive messages to / from topics.

Running the bridge

On Kubernetes and OpenShift

You can use the Strimzi Kafka operator to deploy the Kafka Bridge with HTTP support on Kubernetes and OpenShift.

On bare-metal / VM

Download the ZIP or TAR.GZ file from the GitHub release page and unpack it. Afterwards, edit the config/application.properties file which contains the configuration. Once your configuration is ready, start the bridge using:

bin/kafka_bridge_run.sh --config-file config/application.properties
