Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-5599) ConsoleConsumer : --new-consumer option as deprecated
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 11:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5599?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16089684#comment-16089684

Ismael Juma commented on KAFKA-5599:

For background, there was a time when "--new-consumer" was required to use the new consumer.
We changed that in a recent release because we wanted the new consumer to become the default.
The idea was to deprecated and eventually remove "--new-consumer" in subsequent releases.

> Hi,
> it seems to me that the --new-consumer option on the ConsoleConsumer is useless.
> The useOldConsumer var is related to specify --zookeeper on the command line but then
the ----bootstrap-server option (or the --new-consumer) can't be used.
> If you use --bootstrap-server option then the new consumer is used automatically so no
need for --new-consumer.
> It turns out the using the old or new consumer is just related on using --zookeeper or
--bootstrap-server option (which can't be used together, so I can't use new consumer connecting
to zookeeper).
> It's also clear when you use --zookeeper for the old consumer and the output from help
says :
> "Consider using the new consumer by passing [bootstrap-server] instead of [zookeeper]"
> Before removing the --new-consumer option, this JIRA is for marking it as deprecated
in the next release (then moving for a new release on removing such option).
> Thanks,
> Paolo.
