The Apache Kafka Consumer API enables applications to read streams of data from topics in a Kafka cluster. It maintains TCP connections to the necessary brokers to fetch data. This API is accessible indirectly using Java code.
Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform that can be used to publish and subscribe to streams, store streams in a fault-tolerant way, and process streams as they occur.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
