About Kafka adapter

The Kafka adapter can be used to connect a Diffusion server (or server cluster) to an Apache Kafka cluster. It can consume messages from a Kafka cluster and publish them to Diffusion, and vice versa.

The adapter uses the Diffusion Gateway framework, hence supports all features supported by the framework. See Gateway Application section in the Framework’s used guide to understand the concepts of the framework and to understand how to configure a Gateway application.

The adapter can be viewed and managed from the Diffusion management console of the connected server or in any other server in same cluster. Once started, the adapter is visible on the Diffusion console, in 'Network' section, as type 'KafkaAdapter' with the id specified in the configuration.
