> We currently provide serializers/deserializers/serdes for a few data types such as String,
Long, Double, but not yet for Float.
> Adding built-in support Float is helpful for when e.g. you are using Kafka Connect to
write data from a MySQL database, where the field was defined as a FLOAT, so the schema was
generated as FLOAT, and you like to subsequently process the data with Kafka Streams.
> Possible workaround:
> Instead of adding Float support, users can manually convert from float to double.  The
point of this ticket however is to save the user from being forced to convert manually, thus
providing more convenience and slightly better Connect-Streams interoperability in a scenario
such as above.
