Who uses Kafka Streams?
Kafka Streams Integrations
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Kafka Streams in their tech stack.
I have recently started using Confluent/Kafka cloud. We want to do some stream processing. As I was going through Kafka I came across Kafka Streams and KSQL. Both seem to be A good fit for stream processing. But I could not understand which one should be used and one has any advantage over another. We will be using Confluent/Kafka Managed Cloud Instance. In near future, our Producers and Consumers are running on premise and we will be interacting with Confluent Cloud.
Also, Confluent Cloud Kafka has a primitive interface; is there any better UI interface to manage Kafka Cloud Cluster?
We currently have 2 Kafka Streams topics that have records coming in continuously. We're looking into joining the 2 streams based on a key with a window of 5 minutes based on their timestamp.
Should I consider kStream - kStream join or Apache Flink window joins? Or is there any other better way to achieve this?
