Subject [DISCUSS] KIP-26 - Add Copycat, a connector framework for data import/export
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 23:32:12 GMT
Hi all,

I just posted KIP-26 - Add Copycat, a connector framework for data
import/export here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/Kafka+Improvement+Proposals

This is a large KIP compared to what we've had so far, and is a bit
different from most. We're proposing the addition of a fairly big new
component to Kafka because we think including it as part of Kafka rather
than as an external project is in the best interest of both Copycat and
Kafka itself.

The goal with this KIP is to decide whether such a tool would make sense in
Kafka, give a high level sense of what it would entail, and scope what
would be included vs what would be left to third-parties. I'm hoping to
leave discussion of specific design and implementation details, as well
logistics like how best to include it in the Kafka repository & project, to
the subsequent JIRAs or follow up KIPs.

Looking forward to your feedback!
