You can accomplish a great deal by implementing your own Kafka consumers. Like almost any source code, it is a good idea to build unit tests to verify the functionality of your consumer code. Kafka's MockConsumer test fixture simplifies the process of building unit tests for producer code. In this lab, we will work with consumer test fixtures by writing a few unit tests for an existing consumer.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
