Importing Data from a Database with Kafka Connect
Kafka Connect provides a framework for moving data between Kafka and other systems. Moreover, a variety of useful connectors already exist to make this process even easier for common use cases. In this hands-on lab, you will have the opportunity to use Kafka Connect to ingest data from an external database into Kafka. You will use the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Connector to automatically load data from a table in a PostgreSQL database into a Kafka topic.
