Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-6378) NullPointerException on KStream-GlobalKTable leftJoin when KeyValueMapper returns null
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2018 22:59:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-6378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16308856#comment-16308856
] 

Guozhang Wang commented on KAFKA-6378:
--------------------------------------

For this special case, generally using a sentinel value that is guaranteed to NOT be in the
global table as the return value of {{KeyValueMapper}} is better than using {{null}}, because
the javadoc did not indicate {{null}} would mean "do not join with the global table at all";
but I also agree with Matthias that we can probably change this by adding the check internally
and modify the javadoc that returning {{null}} will be specially interpreted, if this becomes
a common pattern.

>             Project: Kafka

> On a Stream->GlobalKTable leftJoin if the KeyValueMapper returns null, the stream
fails with a NullPointerException (see stacktrace below). On Kafka 0.11.0.0 the stream processes
this successfully, calling the ValueJoiner with the table value set to null.
> The use-case for this is joining a stream to a table containing reference data where
the stream foreign key may be null. There is no straight-forward workaround in this case with
Kafka 1.0.0 without having to resort to either generating a key that will never match or branching
the stream for records that don't have the foreign key.
