Service Bus Transport for Apache Kafka by Ricardo Ferreira



This sample provides a native transport for OSB (Oracle Service Bus) that allows connectivity with Apache Kafka. By using native APIs, the transport allows resilient and high speed access to Apache Kafka clusters. Integration developers can benefit from this transport in the implementation of use cases that requires the integration to/from Apache Kafka with applications (SaaS and On-Premise) supported by OSB, as well as technologies such as JMS, HTTP, MSMQ, Coherence, Tuxedo, FTP, etc.

Using the Kafka Transport for Inbound Processing (From Kafka to the World)
Using the Kafka Transport for Outbound Processing (From the World to Kafka)

This is an Open-Source project maintained by Oracle.

Features and Benefits:

The OSB Transport for Apache Kafka provides inbound and outbound connectivity with Apache Kafka. But this is definetely a oversimplification of what this transport can really do. The list below summarizes the most important features found in this implementation.

  • Supports multiple Apache Kafka versions such as 0.9.X, 0.10.X and above.
  • It works with the enterprise version of Kafka (Confluent Platform) as well.
  • Designed to work with 12c versions of OSB. Compatible with 12.1.3 and 12.2.1. Get the code here.
