Subject Better API/Javadocs?
Date Sun, 11 Oct 2015 16:04:28 GMT
Will Kafka v0.9 publish official javadocs for the entire API? In 0.8,
javadocs appear rather sparse. It's hard to find a javadoc that documents
both Consumers and Producers.

Also, will future versions of Kafka have more intuitive
serializer/deserializer interfaces? E.g., if a Producer can configure an
automatic POJO -> byte[] serializer, why does the Consumer API not have the
option to configure an automatic byte[] -> POJO deserializer?

Could a basic JSON serializer/deserializer be included? JSON's a common
enough wire format that I think it's reasonable to include a decent one by
default, so Kafka users aren't reinventing that wheel.
