Apache Kafka is today’s topic. I am getting started developing realtime data processing platform which uses Apache Storm. Storm receives data from Kafka as messages. So I’d like to learn the architecture of Kafka and how to build it.
You can learn here very detail. So I am going to introduce how to build Kafka project on MacOSX and IntelliJ IDEA.
$ brew install gradle
You can checkin Kafka source code repository.
$ git clone http://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/kafka.git kafka
And build whole project with gradle.
$ cd kafka $ gradle
OK. You can get all built files under
gradle/wrapper/*. In this directory, there is a class which generate IntelliJ setting.
You can use it with this command.
$ ./gradlew idea
If there are no problem through this process, all you have to do is finished except one thing. Just open it with IntelliJ IDEA.
It very easy, isn’t it? All process is written in here. Of course you can also use Eclipse.
