Subject Re: [DISCUSS] KIP-238: Expose Kafka cluster ID in Connect REST API
Date Tue, 12 Dec 2017 00:01:38 GMT
Thanks, Ewen :)

One thing that wasn't clear to me from the wiki: Will standalone connect
also have a Kafka cluster ID? While it is true that only tasks have
producers and consumers, I think we assumed that all tasks on one
stand-alone will use one Kafka cluster?

Another suggestion is not to block the REST API on the connection, but
rather not return the cluster ID until we know it (return null instead). So
clients will need to poll rather than block. Not sure this is better, but
you didn't really discuss this, so wanted to raise the option.
