Subject Re: 0.8.x consumer group protocol
Date Wed, 04 May 2016 14:25:51 GMT
0.8 clients manage groups by connecting directly to zookeeper and
implementing shared group management code. There are no broker APIs used.

0.9 clients manage groups using new kafka broker APIs. These clients no
longer connect directly to zookeeper. JoinGroupRequest is an 0.9 api.

For an 0.8ish reimplementation, you might take a look at pykafka. There is
also the old Kafka Java code. I'm not aware of great docs, though. FWIW,
there are not many unofficial clients that have implemented group
management for 0.8 (unless they are just wrapping the official library
running on the jvm).

Hi there!

I'm investigating what it means to implement consumer group protocol for
However all the documents I can find on line is for 0.9

Also, in kafka code base, JOIN_GROUP_REQUEST_V0 schema in 0.8 is different
from 0.9.
Why is the protocol upgraded without bumping the JoinGroupRequest API
version number?

Anyone have some tips on where to start?
