Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-5992) Better Java Documentation for AdminClient Exceptions
Date Fri, 29 Sep 2017 04:25:00 GMT
Stephane Maarek created KAFKA-5992:

             Summary: Better Java Documentation for AdminClient Exceptions
                 Key: KAFKA-5992
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5992
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Stephane Maarek

When invoking a describeTopics operation on a topic that does not exist, we get an InvalidTopicException
as a RuntimeException.

I believe this should be documented, and the API maybe changed:

For example changing:
    public DescribeTopicsResult describeTopics(Collection<String> topicNames) {

    public DescribeTopicsResult describeTopics(Collection<String> topicNames) throws

Additionally, in case multiple topics don't exist, only the first one will throw an error.
This is really not scalable. 

Maybe the DescribeTopicsResult could have a Boolean "topicExists" ? 
Up for discussion
