Kafka Connect in Action: JDBC Sink


This is a walkthrough of configuring #ApacheKafka #KafkaConnect to stream data from #ApacheKafka to a #database such as #MySQL.

It discusses common errors, how to place the #JDBC driver JAR correctly, how to deal with deserialisation, and how to use ksqlDB to apply a schema to schema-less data.

See for code and details.

*NOTE* How ksqlDB deals with keys changed in v0.10 (this video shows 0.8). See for details
