Kafka Java Client for Transactional Event Queues (TEQ) enables Kafka application compatibility with Oracle database. This provides easy migration of Kafka applications to TEQ.
Customers don't have to manage a separate Kafka infrastructure, and this feature simplifies the event-driven application architectures with an Oracle converged database that now includes events data.
Starting from this release, Kafka Java APIs can connect to Oracle database server and use Transactional Event Queues (TEQ) as a messaging platform. Developers can migrate an existing Java application that uses Kafka to the Oracle database. A client side library allows Kafka applications to connect to Oracle database instead of Kafka cluster and use TEQ messaging platform transparently.
