Kafka Java Client for Transactional Event Queues (TEQ), Another great feature added to Oracle 21c …

Posted by FatDBA on November 6, 2022

Hi Guys,

Recently I was testing some advance queuing functions to setup an asynchronous communication (using event queues) between few applications and users on Oracle 21c database, to build a messaging platform. I was looking for a way to connect my client side libraries to allow Kafka APIs to connect to Oracle DB.

I had no clue how to do this integration, and then I came across this official documentation which talks about a new functionality in Oracle Database Version 21c – Kafka Java Client for Transactional Event Queues (TEQ) that enables Kafka application compatibility with Oracle Database. This provides easy migration of Kafka applications to TEQ.

Oracle Transactional Event Queue (TEQ) makes it easy to implement event-based applications. It is also highly integrated with Apache Kafka. Apart from enabling apps that use Kafka APIs to transparently operate on Oracle TEQ, Oracle TEQ also supports bi-directional information flow between TEQ and Kafka, so that changes are available in TEQ or Kafka as soon as possible in near-real-time.

Apache Kafka Connect is a framework included in Apache Kafka that integrates Kafka with other systems. Oracle TEQ will provide standard JMS package and related JDBC, Transaction packages to establish the connection and complete the transactional data flow. Oracle TEQ configures standard Kafka JMS connectors to establish interoperability and complete the data flow between the two messaging systems.

Another great blog post on the topic : https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/21/adque/Kafka_cient_interface_TEQ.html#GUID-94589C97-F323-4607-8C3A-10A0EDF9DA0D

Hope It Helps!
