Subject RE: Reg. Kafka - Socket Communication from external system
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2016 05:22:36 GMT
Hi Gwen,


Thanks for your reply.


Our GPS device support TCP IP Socket communication with IP and Port. Kindly suggest KAKFA
supports directly or do we need to write service layer for interface with KAFKA.


Thanks & Regards,

Kafka requires a specific protocol and it is unlikely that GPS devices will support this protocol
out of the box.


The usual solution is to create a service that accepts GPS packets using the protocol that
GPS devices support, converts it to Kafka records and produce them to a Kafka broker.

Please let us know whether KAFKA will support socket based communication

and Port.

Thanks in Advance
