Creating A Simple Kafka Streams Application

Bill Bejeck has built a simple Kafka Streams application for us:

This blog post will quickly get you off the ground and show you how Kafka Streams works.

This application is called the yelling application.

Before diving into the code, let’s take a look at the processing topology you’ll assemble for this “yelling” application. We’ll build a processing graph topology, where each node in the graph has a particular function.
