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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
