Subject Re: KStreams / add support for sink processor with dynamic topics
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2016 14:36:34 GMT
Thank you Matthias for your answers.

The mailing list that you linked shows a solution using the Processor API.

Actually, the set of subtypes is not known in advance this is why I need to
compute output topics from messages. So the branch method is of any help in
my context.

I think, this feature should be supported by the DSL as the Processor API
solution is not completely safe.
