Subject Re: Hadoop Summit Meetups
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 15:27:29 GMT
As Junn Rao said, it is pretty much possible multiple publishers publishes
to a topic and different group of consumers can consume a message and apply
group specific logic example raw data processing, aggregation etc., Each
distinguished group will receive a copy.

But the offset cannot be used UUID as the counter may reset incase you
restart Kafka for some reasons. Not sure, can someone throw some light?
