Expressive Kafka Streams API for Scala Developers

May 17, 2018



This talk presents a couple of libraries for using Scala for Kafka streams development: 1. A fluent Scala API with proper type inferencing that leads to Scala code with a lot less boilerplate than when using the Java API from Scala. The API wraps the original Java API and hence the developer can use the same builder style composition in Scala but with fewer type annotations & better abstractions. 2. An HTTP-based query layer on top of the Kafka streams interactive query service. The solution is based on akka-http & provides a query service across the distributed instances of your Kafka application. Required knowledge Basic Scala, Kafka Streams Learning objectives The objectives are 2 fold: * Use idiomatic Scala APIs from your Kafka Streams application. The current Java APIs that Kafka Streams offers are a pain to use from Scala because of added type annotations and quite a bit of boilerplate code. * Learn about the HTTP query library that makes Kafka Streams Interactive Query services available across the distributed instances of your application.
