I tried searching for Kafka Connect source connectors on confluent hub but wasn’t able to find what I’m looking for.
I want to have a Kafka Connect source connector that listens to http posts from my “legacy” application. The legacy application posts xml content (soap requests) which I want to push to a Kafka topic and then consume from there.
Kai Wähners blog post discusses the possibility of using Kafka Connect for web services (including SOAP) but doesn’t go into details.
The confluent hub link above finds nothing when looking for soap. When looking for http I find this: https://www.confluent.io/hub/castorm/kafka-connect-http
But it looks like something to poll an http API and not helpfull for my use case where I need to listen to incoming http posts.
So is the only way forwards to start looking into building a Kafka connect source connector or did I miss something that I could use to jump start the process?
