Subject Re: Kinesis Connector
Date Fri, 18 Sep 2015 10:00:09 GMT
Hi Stephan,

I’m not a lot familiar with Kafka on the other hand, but I think they offer a very similar
abstraction. Kinesis has a low-level api and an high level consumer, the Kinesis Client Library
I‘ve implemented a first version of the connector using the KCL, that I’ve been using
for testing. 
It doesn’t support checkpointing yet, I’ll have a better look at the Flink Kafka Consumer
and see what needs to be done to add support for checkpoints. I’ll probably need more help
for that.

as Kafka, especially with the ability to read the streams from specific positions. That way,
it should be possible to follow the same design as the Kafka connector (even simpler, if they
don't have the tricky offset committing part of Kafka).
