Eranga Heshan commented on OODT-946:

Hi Tom,

I am a student of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.

I have experience in working with Kafka as a distributed messaging system. 

I am very much interested in contributing to this project. I hope to get in contact with you
and learn more.

Thanks & Regards.
Eranga Heshan

> Under the hood of Apache OODT we make use of XMLRPC and/or Apache Avro to help with messaging
and communications. 
> Our proposal for Apache OODT 2.0 is to replace some of this underlying communication
trafficking with Apache Kafka. In doing so this will allow multiple components to subscribe
to streams and register their interest. It also allows us to track messages flowing throughout
the system allowing for much improved auditability.
> The initial work would be done in the file manager, replacing some of the internal communications
with Kafka based messaging and also then providing an external interface that other OODT components
can subscribe to allowing for event registration when files are ingested.
> Secondly we would look to replace the messaging within the Workflow Manager with Kafka
there by allowing easier tracabilty of the data flowing through it and again allowing other
components to register themselves against it. This will also make integration of 3rd party
applications easier.
> Part 3 would introduce Kafka based messaging into the resource manager, allowing components
to be aware of the resources available to them in real time.
