So it’s time to send some data bits through Apache Kafka. But first, as usual, we need to install it first.
Installing Kafka is so trivial, so I’ll change my rule and will actually explain the process. Here goes the manual:
- Install Java Development Kit (you probably have it already)
- Download Kafka tarball
- Uncompress it ( tar -xzf kafka_2.11-0.10.1.0.tgz in *nix systems)
- Done. You installed Kafka.
