Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-5635) KIP-181 Kafka-Connect integrate with kafka ReST Proxy

Dhananjay Patkar created KAFKA-5635:

             Summary: KIP-181 Kafka-Connect integrate with kafka ReST Proxy
                 Key: KAFKA-5635
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5635
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: KafkaConnect
            Reporter: Dhananjay Patkar

Kafka connect currently uses kafka clients which directly connect to kafka brokers. 
In a use case, wherein I have many kafka connect [producers] running remotely its a challenge
to configure broker information on every connect agent.

Also, in case of IP change [upgrade or cluster re-creation], we need to update every remote
connect configuration.

If kafka connect source connectors talk to ReST endpoint then client is unaware of broker
details. This way we can transparently upgrade / re-create kafka cluster as long as ReST endpoint
remains same.
