Subject Re: Can multiple Kafka consumers read from the same partition of same topic by default?
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 04:49:07 GMT
It's explained in the JavaDocs:

https://kafka.apache.org/0102/javadoc/index.html?org/apache/kafka/clients/consumer/KafkaConsumer.html

Also here:

http://docs.confluent.io/current/clients/consumer.html


If you have any more up question, just follow up :)
