Subject RE: SplitRecord behaviour

Thanks Bryan, I got your point.  Yeah we could try PublishKafkaRecord, as in some of other
case we had already used PublishKafkaRecord(csv data to avro) to send out records.
In the below mentioned use case we thought of sending out bunch of records(as we are not doing
anything with the data) at one shot instead of sending one record at a time.

Flow files are not transferred until the session they came form is committed. So imagine we
periodically commit and some of the splits are transferred, then half way through a failure
is encountered, the entire original flow file will be reprocessed, producing some of the same
splits that were already send out. The way it is implemented now, it is either completely
successful, or not, but never partially successful producing duplicates.

Based on the description of your flow with the three processors you mentioned, I wouldn't
bother using SplitRecord, just have ListenHttp
-> PublishKafkaRecord. PublishKafkaRecorcd can be configured with the
same reader and writer you were using in SplitRecord, and it will read each record and send
to Kafka, without having to produce unnecessary flow files.

Is there any reason why did we design this way? Will it not be good if we send out splits
 to next processor after each configured records instead of all sending all splits at one
