內容簡介 The software architecture landscape has evolved dramatically over the past decade. Microservices have displaced monoliths. Data and applications are increasingly becoming distributed and decentralised. But composing disparate systems is a hard problem. More recently, software practitioners have been rapidly converging on event-driven architecture as a sustainable way of dealing with complexity - integrating systems without increasing their coupling.In Effective Kafka, Emil Koutanov explores the fundamentals of Event-Driven Architecture - using Apache Kafka - the world's most popular and supported open-source event streaming platform.You'll learn: - The fundamentals of event-driven architecture and event streaming platforms- The background and rationale behind Apache Kafka, its numerous potential uses and applications- The architecture and core concepts - the underlying software components, partitioning and parallelism, load-balancing, record ordering and consistency modes- Installation of Kafka and related tooling - using standalone deployments, clusters, and containerised deployments with Docker- Using CLI tools to interact with and administer Kafka classes, as well as publishing data and browsing topics- Using third-party web-based tools for monitoring a cluster and gaining insights into the event streams- Building stream processing applications in Java 11 using off-the-shelf client libraries- Patterns and best-practice for organising the application architecture, with emphasis on maintainability and testability of the resulting code- The numerous gotchas that lurk in Kafka's client and broker configuration, and how to counter them- Theoretical background on distributed and concurrent computing, exploring factors affecting their liveness and safety- Best-practices for running multi-tenanted clusters across diverse engineering teams, how teams collaborate to build complex systems at scale and equitably share the cluster with the aid of quotas- Operational aspects of running Kafka clusters at scale, performance tuning and methods for optimising network and storage utilisation- All aspects of Kafka security -including network segregation, encryption, certificates, authentication and authorization.The coverage is progressively delivered and carefully aimed at giving you a journey-like experience into becoming proficient with Apache Kafka and Event-Driven Architecture. The goal is to get you designing and building applications. And by the conclusion of this book, you will be a confident practitioner and a Kafka evangelist within your organisation - wielding the knowledge necessary to teach others.
