Subject Re: Create Kafka Topic Programatically
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2016 13:24:52 GMT
Hi Joe,

We're doing a similar thing that you're looking for with some of our app
nodes. We use the kafka.admin.AdminTools and its
topicExists()/createTopic() methods. Some additional code (e.g. Kafka
context check/creation) might be needed for dev/test environments if you're
using a specific Kafka context instead of the root.
