Subject Re: [discuss] What about splitting the kafka Connector into kafka 0.8 and 0.9?
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2018 10:58:31 GMT
Hi all,

reporting back from my easter holidays :-)

Today I had to help a customer with getting a POC working that uses PLC4X and Edgent. Unfortunately
it seems that in order to use the kafka connector I can only use 0.x versions of Kafka. When
connecting to 1.x versions I get stack-overflows and OutOfMemory errors. I did a quick test
with updating the kafaka libs from the ancient to 1.1.0 seemed to not break anything
... I'll do some local tests with an updated Kafka client. 

@vino yang ... have you been working on adding the Annotations to the client?

@all others ... does anyone have objections to updating the kafka client libs to 1.1.0? It
shouldn't break anything as it should be backward compatible. As we are currently not using
anything above the API level of 0.8.2 there should also not be any Exceptions (I don't know
of any removed things, which could be a problem).

    So I just added a new Annotation type to the Kafka module. 
    It has a fromVersion and a toVersion attribute. Both should be optional so just adding
the annotation would have no effect (besides a few additional CPU operations). The annotation
can be applied to methods or classes (every method then inherits this). I hope that's ok,
because implementing this on a parameter Level would make things extremely difficult.
    @vino yang With this you should be able to provide Kafka version constraints to your code
changes. Just tell me if something's missing or needs to be done differently
    For now this annotation will have no effect as I haven't implemented the Aspect for doing
the checks, but I'll start working on that as soon as you have annotated something.

        Ok ... maybe I should add the Annotation prior to continuing my work on the AWS connector

            The reason is that Kafka 0.9+ provided a new consumer API which has more
            features and better performance.
            Just like Flink's implementation :
