If you plan to build streaming applications with Kafka, this is the book you need to read.
Everything you need to implement stream processing on Apache KafkaⓇ using Kafka Streams and the kqsIDB event streaming database.
This totally revised new edition of Kafka Streams in Action
has been expanded to cover more of the Kafka platform used for building event-based applications. You’ll also find full coverage of ksqlDB, an event streaming database purpose-built for stream processing applications.
In Event Streaming with Kafka Streams and ksqlDB
you’ll learn how to:
- Design streaming applications in Kafka Streams with the KStream and the Processor API
- Integrate external systems with Kafka Connect
- Enforce data compatibility with Schema Registry
- Build applications that respond immediately to events in either Kafka Streams or ksqlDB
- Craft materialized views over streams with ksqlDB
about the technology
The lightweight Kafka Streams library provides exactly the power and simplicity you need for event-based applications, real-time event processing, and message handling in microservices. The ksqlDB database makes it a snap to create applications that respond immediately to events, such as real-time push and pull updates.
about the book
Event Streaming with Kafka Streams and ksqlDB
teaches you to implement stream processing within the Kafka platform. In this easy-to-follow book, you’ll explore real-world examples to collect, transform, and aggregate data, work with multiple processors, and handle real-time events. You’ll also dive into processing event data with ksqlDB. Practical to the very end, it finishes with testing and operational aspects, such as monitoring, debugging, and gives you the opportunity to explore a few end-to-end projects.
about the reader
