Subject Not able to read Kafka Messages with FlinkKafkaConsumer010
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2017 07:12:36 GMT
I am pretty sure I am doing something wrong here. Just that I do not
understand why?

I wrote a small program that reads messages from Kafka and prints it out.

public class Main {

    private static final int CHECKPOINT_INTERVAL = 100000;

    private static Properties getpropsFromEnv() {
        Properties props = new Properties();
        props.setProperty("bootstrap.servers", System.getenv("KAFKA_ADDRESS"));
        props.setProperty("group.id", System.getenv("CONSUMER_GROUP_ID"));
        props.setProperty("topic", System.getenv("KAFKA_TOPIC"));
        return props;

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

        Properties props = getpropsFromEnv();

        StreamExecutionEnvironment env =
        FlinkKafkaConsumer010<LogMessage> flinkConsumer =
                new FlinkKafkaConsumer010<LogMessage>(

Arrays.asList(parameterTool.getRequired("topic").split(",")), new
LogDeserializationSchema(), parameterTool.getProperties()

        DataStream<LogMessage> logMessageDataStream =



public class LogDeserializationSchema implements
DeserializationSchema<LogMessage> {

    public LogMessage deserialize(byte[] message) {
        LogMessage logMessage = null;
        try {
            logMessage =  LogMessage.parseFrom(message);
        } catch (InvalidProtocolBufferException e) {
        } finally {
            return logMessage;

    public boolean isEndOfStream(LogMessage nextElement) {
        return false;

    public TypeInformation<LogMessage> getProducedType() {
        return TypeExtractor.getForClass(LogMessage.class);

When I run this program, I do not see any messages being read by the consumer.

Things to note :

1. I ran kafka-console-consumer using the same Kafka parameters and
saw continuous output.

2. My Gradle file has the following depencies :

dependencies {
    compile group: 'ch.qos.logback', name: 'logback-classic', version: '1.1.7'

    compile 'org.aeonbits.owner:owner:1.0.9'

Can Someone please help ?
