Stream Reactor, the largest open-source collection of Apache Kafka connectors, has released today many new features, bug fixes and new connectors for Apache Pulsar!

  • Version 0.4.0 for Kafka Connect 0.11

  • Version 1.0.0 for Kafka Connect 1.0

About StreamReactor

Stream Reactor is an Apache License, Version 2.0 open source collection of components built on top of Kafka and provides Kafka Connect compatible connectors to move data between Kafka and popular data stores. Stream Reactor provides source connectors to publish data into Kafka and sink connectors to bring data from Kafka into other systems. The connectors support KCQL (Kafka Connect Query Language), an open source component of the Lenses SQL Engine that provides an elegant and simple SQL like syntax for selecting fields and routing from sources or topics to Kafka or the target system (topic to target entity mapping, field selection, auto creation, auto evolution, error policies).

We hope you find Stream Reactor useful and want to give it a try! Stream Reactor has over 25 connectors available, tested and documented, supporting both Kafka 0.11 and Kafka 1.0 and you can give it a try by downloading Lenses Development Environment or find the jars on GitHub or even build the code locally and help us improve and add even more connectors.

New Connector: Apache Pulsar source and sink

Apache Pulsar is an open-source distributed pub/sub messaging system originally created at Yahoo and now part of the Apache Software Foundation.

In our effort to provide you with the best tooling and experience in building and operating meaningful data pipelines, we are continuously working with streaming technologies. As part of that, we are now releasing Kafka Connectors for Apache Pulsar that allow you to source or sink data in and out of both Kafka and Pulsar with ease.
