Subject Re: producer encoder class api
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2013 18:04:31 GMT
I'll have to try it out, but I think we can just have
VerifiableProperties extend from java.util.Properties (so your encoder
can just have Properties in its constructor). The producer can
internally instantiate VerifiableProperties, pass that in to
instantiate the encoder and do verification afterward. Can you file a
jira for this?
