Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-1659) Ability to cleanly abort the KafkaProducer
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2014 04:19:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1659?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14154322#comment-14154322

Jay Kreps commented on KAFKA-1659:
----------------------------------

Yeah and that is in some sense a bigger problem because even if you don't want to shutdown
the producer, that will block you. So maybe we should file a ticket for that and close these
two?

> I would like the ability to "abort" the Java Client's KafkaProducer. This includes the
stopping the writing of buffered records.
> The motivation for this is described [here|http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/kafka-dev/201409.mbox/%3CCAOk4UxB7BJm6HSgLXrR01sksB2dOC3zdt0NHaKHz1EALR6%3DCTQ%40mail.gmail.com%3E].
> A sketch of this method is:
> {code}
> public void abort() {
>         try {
>             ioThread.interrupt();
>             ioThread.stop(new ThreadDeath());
>         } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
>         }
> }
> {code}
> but of course it is preferable to stop the {{ioThread}} by cooperation, rather than use
the deprecated {{Thread.stop(new ThreadDeath())}}.
