Subject Re: KAFKA-6144(or other ticket to resolve)
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2018 17:32:12 GMT
Thanks Nikolay,

of course we would like to get this ticket resolved! Just a heads up:
it's a complex beast and we need to lay out a sound design. Thus, I
expect a long KIP discussion. If this does (hopefully) not scare you,
feel free to pick it up.

Also note, related https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-6555 (and
the corresponding PR) -- please also sync with Ashish (comment on the
Jira) if he is still interested in working on this. He got silent for a
while, so maybe not, but we should double check.

IMHO, we should tackle the issue holistically and thus first discuss:

 - Do we want to allow to query state active stores?
 - Do we want to allow to query Standby stores?
 - What are the pros/cons for both approaches?
 - Could it make sense to support both?
 - If we support both, can we design/implement them independent or do we
need one holistic design?
 - Do we need user facing API changes?
 - Is this feature enabled by default, or do users need to opt-in?

And maybe others. Thus, a good starting point might be to write up a KIP
that covers all those questions, and proposes desired semantics and how
developers would use this feature. As a second step, we can think about
implementation details.

How does this sound?
