Subject Re: Bolt vs Spout
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:11:53 GMT
I feel like you missed the issue in my question.  For the connection string
for ZkHosts, if I pass in localhost:9092 with a default kafka
configuration, it won't connect.  Instead I have to pass in localhost:2181.
 Is this expected behavior?  Also, if I wanted to pass in more than one
host, what should separate the entries?  Commas?
