Subject Re: Launch Kafka/Zookeeper servers without using command line
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 23:20:42 GMT
Hey Gwen,

Thanks for your response. The example was very helpful and exactly what I
was looking for! I went ahead and used that as an example and while most
things are working as I wanted, there are a few issues I'd like to follow
up on:

1. If I launch a Zookeeper/Kafka server from code instead of command line,
most of the helpful debugging/status messages will not be displayed -- is
there any way I can retain this functionality?

2. I created a scenario where I successfully launched a Zookeeper instance
from code, then connected to that Zookeeper server using a Kafka Server via
command line. I then instantiated both a Kafka-Console-Consumer and
Kafka-Console-Producer with the topic 'test'. I was able to send messages
to the consumer as expected, but I noticed that when I try to connect the
console consumer to the server I always get a 'Connection Refused' error to
my Kafka Broker. Any ideas why this might be occuring?

Best,
Jeff
