Spring For Apache Kafka 2.0 GA Available

We are pleased to announce the general availability of the 2.0.0.RELEASE of the Spring for Apache Kafka 2.0 version.

As mentioned in the 2.0 RC1 announcement, the 1.3 GA is also available supporting the Kafka 0.11.x.x client with Spring Framework 4.3.x applications.

They are available for download from the Release Repository and Maven Central:

repositories {
    maven { url '' }
compile "org.springframework.kafka:spring-kafka:2.0.0.RELEASE"

That was 6 months journey to bring a Java 8 and Spring Framework 5 vision for Spring for Apache Kafka project and here is what we have so far overall:

  • Apache Kafka 0.11.x.x client

  • Transactions support

  • Headers mapping

  • Kafka Streams support

  • KafkaAdmin is now available to automatically add topics (for NewTopic beans present in the application context)

  • errorHandler and groupId support for @KafkaListener; also Consumer argument resolution

  • @EmbeddedKafka for testing support

Many of these features are also available in the 1.3 release.

Thanks to all community members for any feedback and contributions!

Also the minor version spring-integration-kafka-2.3.0.RELEASE is available. This version utilize the spring-kafka-1.3.0.RELEASE foundation and provide some functionality to support Apache Kafka 0.11.x.x client.
